    A burial practice going back to at least the 18th century & became obsolete by the end of the Victorian era- covering the graves of the deceased within strong iron cages. Why?

And on the anniversary of his death, she pours the preserved tears atop his gravesite. It’s tragic, and prolongs the suffering for ritualistic purposes. However, it’s quite poetic.

    What Is the Difference Between Headstones & Gravestones? Headstones and tombstones are markers used to identify burial places. Originally, tombstones were part of the burial receptacle; headstones marked the head of the grave; footstones marked the foot of the grave; and gravestones were a stone slab laid over the grave.
