so, what exactly will be inside, will paint the walls, we don’t know. But you can see already,

that such a tomb could cost a very small amount. External walls and

Is there a fashion in construction

Modern ritual firms also offer

to make a crypt of marble or granite. The Internet has managed to find a couple of

modern projects. This may be the stele “framed by cliffs”, the crypts in the form

arches, columns, “mausoleum of red granite or white marble.” Most importantly,

all this “represents beauty, architectural integrity and eternal calm”.

(Apparently, the drafters wanted to write “peace.”) To do this “eternal beauty in

the stone” and maybe $50 thousand and $100 thousand

In one of the Donetsk firm

really coffins inside buildings anymore, what with them, nobody knows.

The tombs are like little houses, their sizes are about 2 to 4 m, height

2-2,5 m. to Determine their style is quite difficult. There are Gothic, classic

columns, the crypt, similar to the synagogue. There are reminiscent of pseudo-Russian style – with

small “onion domes” on top and seemingly over-hyped proportions.
