Effigies tend to be body centred monuments. Effigy tombs (and effigy slabs) depicted the dead in prayer or holding artefacts that denote their office and identity. The sculpted bodies wore costumes befitting the deceased's status or rank held in life and that aspired for recognition in Heaven. Lots of people enjoy brass rubbing these types of monuments.
