Isn't it! A beautiful example of early 19th century Neo-classical.

Yes. A work of art.

Reminds me of Edward Gorey. But aside from that, I don't recall seeing such extensive carving before. Not from anywhere around that period anyway.

Yes, it's very unusual to see such a profusion of carving on an early 19th century Neo-classical headstone - I think the mason must have been influenced by Baroque memorials inside the church. But the result is just lovely.

Ah, it is rather Gorey.
