It is important to honor those who have passed. Many time that is by making sure a memorial speaks to who they were. Well, what if the deceased was addicted to their smartphone? Why not a giant iphone gravestone?
An unusual 5ft tombstone was put up over Rita Shameeva’s burial plot in a Russian cemetery earlier this year. The 25-year-old woman has been buried underneath a massive iPhone headstone.
The gravestone has a picture of Rita leaning against railings and surrounded by trees in a park set as the screensaver and even has the Apple logo on the back.
It was erected by her grieving father Rais Shameev long after his daughter’s death in January 2016.
The gravestone has been stunning mourner and many having being coming to the Yuzhnoye cemetery to see the bizarre tribute, which towers over the rest in the graveyard.
The grave is believed to have been commissioned from a Siberian company which offers ‘death accessories’…. WTF?
