    Death is a comprehensive and extremely important subject in the history of mankind with the long tradition of pictoral representation as well as the concurrence in other artistic media through diverse iconographic schemes related to the wider sociological and cultural context."Memorials of the dead" occupy a special place within the artistic production, providing a continuing inspiration for artists in communicating messages of burial and commemoration rituals. The approach in IKON is multidisciplinary - the objective is to inform scholars of recent research results in the studies in iconography but also other comparative disciplines in dealing with the subject.
