Carved Headstone

I love pioneer cemeteries. I was walking through this fantastic pioneer cemetery and came across this great wood-carved headstone. This guy is sitting in a chair and sticking out of the ground from the waist up. There is no name on him or next to him, so I'm not sure if he is supposed to be a headstone or just there to watch over someone. The surrounding graves are from the 1880s, so he is probably about that old too.
