  • Historic gravepost Photo from "Hungarian Peasant Art", by Edit Fel, Tamas Hofer, Klara Csillery, published in Hungary, 1958. "The foreign descent of persons married into another village could be publicly manifested on the occasion of their funeral. Nearly each of the Protestant villages of the Great Hungarian Plain has its own particular form of graveposts. At Fulopszallas, if a man or woman married into the village died, the relations brought along a gravepost carved in the fashion of his or her native village. Sometimes two or three generations of a family found their rest in the same grave; the graveposts lined up on it would, in their own symbolic way, provide a kind of family history." (page 34 from the same book)
