GENTLE MEMORIES / Tombstone

GENTLE MEMORIES

The ancestors are the beliefs of the Chinese, and the belief in the ancestors is one of the contents of Chinese religion. For example, Chinese people worshiping their ancestors and sweeping the graves are not only remembering their ancestors, but also begging for the blessing of their ancestors. The tombstone provides a new way for people to communicate with tombstones. The tombstone uses solar power to generate electricity and can detect the temperature of the user's palm. When the user touches the tombstone for more than three seconds, the area gradually warms and illuminates.
