Bizarre comme pierre tombale.
Tom Wilson: Indeed in it!

Now that's very different. It makes a change from those usually seen in English graveyards, for example.
Tom Wilson: A lot of the memorials, even the small ones, are fine sculptures - but this is the most bizarre that I came across!
it does not have a very obvious tombstone feel to it, Tom. but i like the facial features
Tom Wilson: Yes, tombstone is not the first word to spring to mind, is it?
I really love this - like the sleeping moon from nursery rhyme books
Tom Wilson: Rather special, isn't it?

Brilliant! More standing stones should be like this!
Tom Wilson: A little imagination brought to the cemetery does make a difference!

Interesting Tom. I wonder what sort of person deserves a memorial like this?
Tom Wilson: Yes, I've usually photographed the name of the person, but on this occasion didn't do so - I'll probably find out next time I'm there.

R.i.p., Mr. Moon!
Tom Wilson: He should have known there'd be a problem if he came down to earth!

Is this Mr Bean's grave? Reminds me more of a bean, than the moon.
Tom Wilson: Could be, Louis!

Very strange, at first I wondered if it was a seat.
Tom Wilson: Not your average tombstone!
This must be one of the most unusual tombstones I've ever seen.
Tom Wilson: I've certainly never seen anything like it!
Perhaps he liked bananas
Tom Wilson: Could be!
Holy banana! I think it is the moon, under which to sleep. Awesome find, Tom.
Tom Wilson: I was struck dumb!
How good is that, I like Elizabeth's description.
Tom Wilson: Very strange, isn't it?
