Funerary monuments erected inside churches and cathedrals changed in style and form with the ages. From the coffin lids and grave slabs of the 12th century to the elaborate architectural memorials of the Victorian age. However, the symbols of death and mortality; the skulls, cross bones and whole skeletons, were a constantly recurring feature of Christian tomb sculpture, a ‘memento mori’.
