The Vespra Boys cenotaph has an answer.

 — The History of Man and Stone: A Documentary, Marble Institute of America

Nature’s masterpiece. Classic, Eternal. Grace. Durable. Luxury. Variety. Colours. Finishes. History. Unique. Natural. Subtle but sexy. Fast and timeless. Sustainable.  Enduring. Local. Like people. Not man-made. Billions of years old. Natural not manufactured appeal. Still being made. The older it gets, the better it looks. Never ending combinations. Writing media. Elegance. Sophistication. Decorative. Range of hardness.

A crucifix at its apex, solemnly pointing to the meaning behind the word “cenotaph”: His Empty Tomb.
