Death and Taxes hat eine bemerkenswerte Sammlung mit Grabsteinen von Mitgliedern der russischen Mafia:

The mid 1990s unleashed a full-scale mafia war. A former FBI director once called the Russian mafia the greatest threat to U.S. national security in the mid 90s. Flush with cash and muscle to flex, the mob started a new trend of building idols to their fallen crew in the form of some of the ritziest gravestones imaginable.

Oddity Central points out that from Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, to Yekaterinburg, Russia, the styles were much the same—gaudy, highly detailed, featuring cars, booze—sometimes booze on cars.

Russian mafia gravestones are completely insane
