(Located at Webb City Cemetery in Webb City, MO)
Obelisks are one of the most popular types of Egyptian influenced markers. You can see them in just about any cemetery. They were considered tasteful with their pure uplifting lines and associated with ancient greatness. They were also able to be used in relatively small spaces and less costly than the larger and more elaborately sculpted monuments.
Here are a few of the larger Egyptian influences mausoleums I have found.
