It was very different than I expected. Maybe it was the newer, more modern looking headstones, although I only walked through a small part of it. Of course, at the time I did not know any of the history. Now, I have found a new meme, hosted by Julie, down in Sydney, for people who are interested in cemeteries and headstones and I have been looking up some of the history. As a result, I have also learned a new word - such people are called taphophiles.
So, while I have no idea about the family whose name appears on this headstone (I think the name may be Serbian, but I am not certain), I was most taken with the beauty of it. I love the sleekness and almost austerity of the glossy black stone. And the geometry of the two rectangles held together by the circle possibly has a symbolism I am not aware.
And there is that view over the water to the harbour.
If anyone else has a fascination with such grave subjects head over to Taphophile Tragics
