Merry Cemetery

Merry Cemetery

Can some poor Romanian peasants, now deceased, be a truly artistic inspiration for a postmodern fashion collection? Yes, and the fabulous inspiring place we are talking about is the strange and funny graveyard Cimitirul Vesel (Merry Cemetery) from Sapanta, a Romanian village from Maramures county. Praised by National Geographic and countless international newspapers to be the most interesting cemetery in the world, the tombs from Merry Cemetery are decorated with colorful, amusing painted epitaphs showing the biographies of the deceased, mostly quirky tales.
