Woman gets a tombstone in the shape of her favourite iPhone
A 25 year old Russian woman has gotten a five-foot-high tombstone in the shape of her favourite iPhone.
The grieving father of a Russian lady who died in 2016 has given his late daughter a 5ft high tombstone in the shape of her favourite iPhone.
25-year-old Rita Shameeva was buried at a graveyard in the oil-rich Russian city of Ufa after her death in January 2016 from an unknown cause.
Rita’s father decided to honour her with the tombstone made from basalt in the shape of her favourite black iPhone with her picture on display. The monument, which also features a mocked up Quick Response Code, towers above other gravestones in part of Yuzhnoye cemetery.
Mourner Nikolay Yevdokimov told newspaper ProUral:
‘I thought I was having hallucinations. How could an American smartphone suddenly appear at our cemetery? And such a huge one.
‘I came closer and was surprised. I’ve seen many gravestones, but to make one in the form of iPhone – this is the first time, to be honest.
‘It was made for a young woman from black basalt most likely. Very unusual.’
