'Barichara cemetery- a Colombian patrimony, Part-II' - by K.J.S.Chatrath

May I invite you to access the earlier post on this cemetery by me  'Barichara cemetery- a Colombian patrimony, Part-I'  -

This cemetery features a sample of the local stone carvers’ artistic ability. At times, these artists have represented classic symbolic funeral pieces or images of Jesus of the Sacred Heart and of Virgin Mary. At others, upon request by the bereaved, they have recreated the elements that represent the line of work, personality, and tastes of the deceased. And yet others, they have created their versions of masterpieces, such as Gaudi’s The Last Supper. All of the interpretations make for splendid epitaphs.
