A similar one from Oregon

Woodmen of the World....
From Wikipedia....

Cemetery stone with Woodmen logo.
One enduring physical legacy of the organization are distinctive headstones in the shape of a tree stump. This was an early benefit of Woodmen of the World membership, and they are found in cemeteries nationwide. This program was abandoned in the late 1920s as it was too costly.

Typically the headstones would include a depiction of the WOW relics—symbols of the organization. These include most notably a stump or felled tree (inscribed into a more generic monument in some cases, rather than the more noticeable instances of the entire monument being in the shape of the log or tree-stump); the maul and wedge; an axe; and often a Dove of Peace with an olive branch. As Woodmen "do not lie" a common inscription: "Here rests a Woodman of the World".

Wow!
Powerful image.
Do you know why the coffin had been desecrated?

This is one of many that I shot in '71 while attending Instituto Allende in San Miquel de Allende. I was taking a photography class and it was suggested that I visit the grave yard. Scenes like this were throughout - skeletons everywhere. It was explained to me that the State would supply a gravesite for those that could not afford one. You got the hole for about as long as it took for you to get wherever it was that you were going to spend eternity - then they dug you up and used the hole for the next person. My girlfriend and I shot there for a couple of days until we found a freshly severed head in the bushes and decided not to come back. The darkroom was pretty rough and most of my prints were "light struck". I still have the negs in the attic and plan on having them printed soon.

A couple more here:

Takao Gunji: 1936-1986. He will always be remembered for his inability to make a human smile in front of a camera.
