Memento Mori by the anonymous artist

Inscribed with "KNOW THOU NOBLE YOUTH, THE SERPENT THAT DID STING THY FATHER'S LIFE NOW WEARS HIS CROWN."

Alongside the inscribed gravestone, you find stacks of books and a skull (presumably Yorick's). In front of the grave, you see the tips of hands gripping the earth as if trying to dig themselves free.

The anonymous artist is a young local artist who is also responsible for the "Hands of Elsinore". The artist has won local art awards for his pieces.
