Mystery of the tomb art

Aesthetic paintings with Chinese words on tombstones in an old cemetery at Choa Chu Kang Track 14 in Singapore

What do these paintings symbolise?

What do the words mean?

Where do the artworks originate from?

Some of the graves have been exhumed.

It may be a race against time to preserve these tomb arts in photographic records before the whole cemetery is gone.
