It looks like an oversized business card - in stone. But nice.

Thanks for this. I like the epitaph, which you can see a close-up shot of by following the link at the top of the post (to the Creative Review):

"Mutability is the epitaph of worlds

Change alone is changeless

People drop out of the history of a life as of a land though their work or their influence remains"

The Manchester Man by G. Linneaus Banks, 1876
