Pivot the tomb to trace the horizon, rotate to draw simultaneously. The body aligns the tomb’s register with the line of the land, leaving the line of the afterlife behind, always behind and away from view. 
Two drawing arms span a revolving central mast. One arm reads the land and horizon with a fixed register. This register aligns with two vertical mirrors, allowing vision both through to and behind the land. The second arm is fixed with retractable drawing joint, translating vertical movement from the first arm as a planar drawing on the ground. The two share a cable to equate angular displacement.
