Cemeteries are places where people generally visit to mourn and pay their respect to departed souls of near and dear ones. Cemetery sculpture is thus generally associated with sorrow and
mourning. The link given above shows us the sculpted figures at the Staglieno, a cemetery in Genoa, Italy. People visit the place not for general reasons but for witnessing the exceptionally
beautiful figures sculpted on the tombstones. The sculptures are so romantic and heartrending that important figures such as Friedrich Nietzsche and Mark Twain were said to have been influenced
by them, and spent much of their time amidst them.
