Scutari Cemetery

Painted by William Simpson, this picture shows the haphazard nature of providing graves for the fallen. You can see all manner of graves from simple crosses to elaborate stone vaults. You can also see a funeral approaching from the right whilst the gravediggers are obviously muslims praying toward mecca. The hospital can clearly be seen in the background.
