Here are some examples of modern Canadian Buddhist funerary art, from the Chinese sections of the cemetery near where I work.

I would be very interested in posting photos of other such monuments in cities across the country…

The first two pictures are of a section marker for the Canadian Chinese Buddhist Ming Yuet Temple. The next few pictures are a multi-part installation of Bodhisattvas emerging from the earth (Ksitigarbha/Jizo?). Photos © Karma Yönten Gyatso 2014
