Description:
This category is for the listing of Death Mask Gravestones, or castings of deceased persons built into cemetery markers .
Expanded Description:
Death masks, or facial casts of deceased persons are part of traditions in many countries. Usually made of plaster or wax, death masks may be used for mementos of the dead, or sometimes used for the creation of portraits.

At one time, creating death masks was very widespread, and an important cultural aspect of mourning rituals for many people. The practice has declined radically since the advent of photography.

The best known of these are the masks used by the ancient Egyptians as part of the mummification process, such as Tutankhamen's burial mask.

In some cultures and regions, death masks are still used to commemorate the dead as part of cemetery markers and memorials. (See example)
