innovative head stone, afterlife, Ascension of Christ
Iran (Islamic Republic of)
Soroush Vahidian Kamyar ( Vahidian Design)
It reminds people That death is not end of the story by reflecting the sky on head stone.
Interaction between people and gravestone is an issue which is less discussed since many think death is the end. In this design the mirror acts as a reminder of afterlife that people go there after death via reflecting the sky so when people look at gravestone their vision would get adverted to the blue sky and moving clouds which recalls dynamic condition of human soul after death. As a result people feel less pity about their beloved as they are reminded that his/ her soul is not under the ground unlike the body.
Reflective cross was inspired from the belief about Ascension of Christ to the Heaven or sky after days of being Crucified. The symbolic cross mirror addresses the place where Jesus Christ was ascended by reflecting the sky.
