Although the tombstones populating the fairly desolate landscape of contemporary cemeteries in Israel may strike one as variegated, the range of forms is quite limited. Grave markers consist of two basic components, erected on a concrete infrastructure: a low, box-like structure that superimposes the backlled pit, to which an appending element is often added, attached above it at one of its ends. Although the height and size of the lower part may vary, it is the form of the upper part that shows the greatest diversity.
