Terms Affiliated with Monuments

A monument is any building or megalith surviving a past age that is regarded as having historical and social importance. They are often erected in memory of a person or event. These can take shape as a grave, memorial, or even head stone. Monuments may range from great marble busts or bronze statues to tomb stones and plaques. Universities may have markers or plaques to commemorate historical events that took place, like Kent state has a memorial and inscription describing what happened at the state university in 1970, with a photo. A cemetery may commemorate the past or honor great men and women that have passed on. There are plenty of terms that can inform an individual about monuments.

  • Effigy – This is a representation of a person in the form of a sculpture or some other three-dimensional form.
  • Urn – This is a vase with a top, or a container that often carries the remains of a dead man or woman. An urn may have a bronze plaque with an inscription that comments on the remains of the person within.
  • Monoliths – These are structures that are often erected to memorialize a person or for religious purposes. Stonehenge is an ancient example of a monolith.
  • Mausoleum – A mausoleum is a tomb that enshrines the remains of the dead. An example would be the Taj Mahal or one of the Great Pyramids.
  • Obelisk – These iconic landmarks are raised as an acting symbol that honors nations or their leaders. The Washington Monument is one example of an obelisk. They represent nationalism and a strong sense of the country where they’ve been erected.

    Monuments can come in the form of granite or custom memorial in local areas. Markers are lain on head stones in case someone takes a tour of a funeral park.

A monument may be located most commonly at a cemetery or funeral park. But monuments may also be located at state parks or local university. If you're interested in purchasing one of these memorial markers, you ought to do some research first. Go online to get a better idea of the type of monument you'll need. If you're looking for a head stone for a tomb or grave, you'll probably want something appropriately somber and elegant.

You also ought to compare monument supply companies before you purchase anything. Many of these companies offer urns and monuments in a variety of materials, at a variety of price points, and you'll want to make sure you choose the company that best suits you. Some companies specialize in reasonably priced granite and marble, for instance. Others specialize in more lavish bronze. You'll need to compare companies before you select one. You'll also need to ask each of these companies for a referral or two before you commission a custom inscription or hand over any money. A monument can be a beautiful way to remember a person or an event, and with a little research, you should be able to find the monument that's best for you.
