When a person dies, their memory usually goes into a state of idealization, but in the minds of those who love them, they are forgotten and appreciated.When people think of a cemetery, they probably think of an adjective other than "sadness" or "terror". No one would associate it with "happiness".
But there is a happy cemetery in the village of sapanta in Romania's northwestern malamleesh county.The whole cemetery is like a beautiful park, with colorful paintings on the tombstones, telling the moving stories of the deceased.
Born in sapanta in 1908, Stan ain began carving crosses for the local cemetery at the age of 14.By 1935, Stan e. had begun to tell the story of the dead man's life in rough local terms, drawing crosses in his image and often including the manner in which he had died.
Stan eyne soon took on the symbolic meaning of color in his tombstone works.Green is life, yellow is fertility, red is passion, black is death and blue is hope, freedom and sky.The white dove of the soul, the black bird of tragedy.
The tombstone, painted with some fruit trees, under the tree stands a man, he is the tomb, his inscription is also a small poem: "in his life, planted a lot of fruit trees, operating manor poverty.Life is sweet and beautiful, children filial talent.Teachers and scholars as well as doctors, famous and illustrious.I need not weep to die, for all I leave is wealth.That's all a man can do, to lie here and be content.The author's thoughts with a picture rapidly changing, after laughter can not help but sigh with emotion, this is not people often say that contentment, death and no regrets?
