First the Mona Lisa, Then Stonehenge, Now Oscar Wilde’s Tomb

The heirs of Oscar Wilde have placed a wall of glass around the Wilde’s tomb in Paris’ Pere Lachaise Cemetery.

The hordes of tourists to the tomb often mark their visits in various ways (graffiti, lipstick stains, etc.). Wilde’s grandson decided to erect the barrier as part of a recent restoration costing over $55,000.

The New York Times has the details.
