The Photo of my Grandparents

At the beginning of the design, I was trigured to build the spiritual place, and finally chose the urban cemetery. The epidemic worldwide became serious at the end of March, enhancing the concept of this design. My grandfather died suddenly in mid-May, which promoted certain parts of this design.
