Posthumous?

It is often said that an illusion remains even after one’s death, and one can experience this near their graves. A creepy thing often comes up in one’s mind when s/he thinks about graveyards. To keep the memory of their loved ones intact, their near and dear ones tend to enact various designs, mostly on the tombstones, or construct the graves with special architectural shapes. There are some graves in this world that are quite different from the traditional ones. The design or architecture of those tombs are really uncommon, as if they replicate the illusions that are intended to remain even after the deceased left this world!
