I’d like to propose a new system for headstones inspired by the drop-down menu you might encounter when filling out your date of birth online. On my new headstone every year a person lived is displayed, one on top of the other like a drop-down menu. The more years a person lived, the taller their headstone. Perfect for sleeping giants.

Different heights for different ages
