Slant face markers are easily recognized by their shape. When you look at them from the end of the monument it looks like a triangle. A slant is unique as it can be installed two different ways at the cemetery. The slant can sit directly on the concrete foundation or a base of granite can be installed on the foundation with the slant sitting on top of the base of granite. Typically, the front is polished, the back is sawed smooth, and the top and ends are rock pitch.
