Horny Cemetery.


The folks in the village of Nokhur, Turkmenistan mark graves with wild sheep horns. Huge horns from mountain goats which the locals consider sacred, protect each tomb in the village cemetery. This village has two such cemeteries, with thousands of graves marked with sheep’s horns.
