The inscription on his tombstone cross says:

" Soacra mea se odihneste, Vai de cine o trezeste ! ". Translated " My mother in law is resting for a while ! You'll be in trouble if you 'll wake her up ! "The miniature is 28 cm tall, 11 inches tall. It has 10 cm width at the base (4 inches).



The Merry Cemetery from Sapanta / Romania is unique in the world.



"This paradoxical name is due to the vivid colours of the crosses and the amusing or satirical epitaphs carved on them. It is said that this joyful attitude towards death is a legacy of the Dacians who believed in the immortality of the soul and that death was only a passage to a better life. They did not see death as a tragic end, but as a chance to meet with the supreme god, Zalmoxis. "
