Obelisk shaped tombstones are commonly seen in cemeteries. They are found in various sizes and some are quite large.
An obelisk is a narrow, four-sided monument with a pyramidal shape at the top. Obelisks have been used as grave markers since the mid-1800s and are one of the most popular types of cemetery memorials. An obelisk can be used in a relatively small space and one obelisk is sometimes used for several graves or it may be the central monument of a family plot.
