Woman immortalized by 5-foot iPhone tombstone in Russia

An unusual gravestone has been discovered on a Russian cemetery that takes the form of a gigantic iPhone, a 5 meter high recreation of the popular smartphone with a picture of the deceased on the screen.

Images of the gigantic iPhone surfaced on Wednesday, after grieving people noticed the local media about the unusual memorial, reports Mirror. The stone iPhone was established earlier this year and commemorates the death of 25-year-old Rita Shameeva, who died of unknown causes in January 2016.

The iPhone measures 5 feet high, is made of basalt and has a picture of the deceased on the screen. The stone itself is quite detailed, with images of the Home button, earphone loudspeaker, volume and standby buttons, reversing camera and even an Apple logo on the back, all in a black stone structure with white highlights.

The high nature and the unusual design fell into the eyes of other patrons of the cemetery, with one who said to the local press: "I thought I had hallucinations, how can an American smartphone suddenly appear in our cemetery?" And so ?? s big? "

There are few details about the life of the person, except an enthusiastic traveler and friends in Germany. Although it is plausible that Shameeva had a passion for smartphones and self-portrait photography, it is unlikely that she was specifically a big fan of Apple, as photos show with the help of other smartphone brands.

It is unclear who made the funerary monument, with the current conviction that it is commissioned by a Siberian company that produces "death supplies".
