Peasant tombstone at Šumadija cemetery

Item Information

Title:
Peasant tombstone at Šumadija cemetery
Description:
In this tombstone, a Serbian peasant is wearing a fez, a part of dress which was retained for some time after the Turkish occupation ended. Such tombstones are no longer to be seen in Orašac; they seem to have all been swept from the cemetery in the latter half of the 20th century.
