At Yekaterinburg cemetery, the city in which Boris Yeltsin was born, you can find these hyper-realistic illustrations of Russian capo mafia figures on their grave stones. The costs of having your own Russian mafia-style gravestone ranges from $8,000 to $250,000. Perhaps not surprisingly, the administrators behind Ukraine’s Dnepropetrovsk cemetery have recently announced that they now offer the same service.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
