New Russian Gravestones

These gravestones are from my hometown of Yekaterinburg in Russia, which in the 90 was the mob (and relevantly contract killing) capital of russia.

 

Many of the stones depict mob bosses in stones, carying their car keys (sign of wealth). My favorite has a separate gravestone for his car. "He was only 29 when he died, but he already had a Toyota Celica!"
