A grieving father commissioned a unique iPhone-shaped gravestone in Russia in memory of his ‘mobile-loving’ daughter.  Those visiting the Yuzhnoye cemetery in Ufa have been left perplexed by the five-feet tombstone erected over the burial plot of Rita Shameeva.

The gravestone, made of black basalt, has the Apple symbol on one side, and a picture of Shameeva on the front. The bizarre memorial also features a QR code on its base. The 25-year-old woman passed away in 2016, but the tombstone was only put up recently, Metro reported.

Not much is known about the woman, who is said to have died due to an “unknown cause”.

According to a Yahoo Lifestyle report, a Siberian artist named Pavel Kalyuk and his company is behind the unique tombstone.

“Initially, Kalyuk created the laser engraved monument to ‘attract attention,’ but people quickly requested to commission a tombstone for their dearly departed,” the report added.
