Jim Morrison's grave

Morrison is buried in the Père Lachaise cemetery in eastern Paris, one of the city's most visited tourist attractions. The grave had no official marker until French officials placed a shield over it, which was stolen in 1973. In 1981, Croatian sculptor Mladen Mikulin placed a bust of Morrison and the new gravestone with Jim's name at the grave to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his death; the bust was defaced through the years by the cemetery Vandals and later stolen in 1988. In the 1990s a flat stone was placed on the grave, possibly by his birth family, with the Greek inscription: ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ, "true to his own spirit." Mikulin later made two more Morrison's portraits in bronze, but he's still waiting for the license to place a new sculpture on the tomb. * * * Look at the nice presents the public leaves to Jim: cigarette butts and bottles… No wonder why a security guard stands there all the time now..
