In addition to her monumental work for public places, Britt Wikström has developed a unique approach of her own, over many years, to the creation of gravestones. She sees these personal monuments to the life of individuals as a form of public art, one to which she aims to bring deeper meaning. Her wish is to offer mourners the possibility of placing a dignified and meaningful memorial in celebration of a precious human life.

Each gravestone is unique and personal to the next of kin. Together with them, she finds the specific symbolism, form and material that best commemorates the life of their loved one.
