Do you know how tombstones come from?

Regarding the graves of relatives, one or two generations can remember them clearly, but after the third generation, they will not be clear. Especially through migration, the war will not know where the ancestral graves are. How to solve the problem, people have come up with many methods. At the beginning, people buried the dead to maintain The garden wooden stakes used for coffin ropes were inspired, and wooden stakes and bamboo poles were inserted in front of the tomb, and fibrous things (paper or silk, etc.) were attached to write down the date and time of the deceased's birth and death, which was called "Ming Jing"; (or "Ming Jing"). But it is easy to damage, so people think of other ways: rich and noble people use stone garden pillars instead of wooden garden stakes, and engrave the names of the deceased, birth time, official rank, etc. on the stone pillars.

Then the tombstones were gradually transformed from practical objects into cultural works of art, and their functions, shapes, textures, and ornaments became more and more diverse. Celebrity tombstones pay more attention to the use of high-quality stone such as granite and marble for the body of the tombstone. The top of the tombstone has statues of the deceased or In the center of the stele is inlaid the burnt porcelain image of the deceased. The tombstone has become a "honor" and ornament that records the lineage and merits of the deceased's clan.

In order to protect from natural erosion and man-made damage such as wind, rain, sun, etc., the tablet table was erected outside the tomb, and the epitaph and inscription were buried in the tomb.
