Why erect a tombstone?

Although there were no tombstones in the early days, the ancients were very concerned about how to identify the tombs of ancestors. At first, fibrous paper or silk was tied to the wooden stakes in front of the tombs, and the names of the deceased, the dates of birth and death, and life stories were written, which is called "" Ming Jing".

However, due to the erosion of wind, sun and years, the wooden piles are very easy to rot, so the stone columns replaced the wooden round piles. Later, based on the needs of the inscription engraving, the rectangular tombstone composed of the cap, the body and the base, It has been promoted and continued to this day.

For those who have outstanding merits and virtues during their lifetime, they should also engrave epitaphs that sing praises for their virtues, hoping that they will be admired and admired in future generations. .

Fifth, the name of the deceased on the monument must be black, and the surname has a red font, which means the prosperity of the clan. If one of the husband and wife died, the monument should be painted in red, and the surname should be painted after death. Just black.

In this regard, there is no uniform standard requirement. In some places, there are many inscriptions in white, gold or red fonts. It is worth noting that the same inscriptions must be inscribed, that is, concave, not convex.
