Tombstone of a weaver, The Merry Cemetery ( Cimitirul Vesel ), Săpânţa, Maramares, Northern Transylvania, Romania. The naive folk art style of the tombstones created by woodcarver Stan Ioan Pătraş (1909 - 1977) who created in his lifetime over 700 colourfully painted wooden tombstones with small relief portrait carvings of the deceased or with scenes depicting them at work or play or surprisingly showing the violent accident that killed them. Each tombstone has an inscription about the person, sometimes a light hearted limerick in Romanian.
