When In Prague ..

Parshas Hashavua
ואלה שמות

The Sefer מושב זקנים (Ba'alei Tosfos) writes," The last Pasuk
in בראשית ends with ויישם בארון the next Pasuk  it says ואלה שמות .
This is a רמז to put the name of the נפטר on the מצבה . "

The daughter in law of R. Yonasan Eibshitz remarried to
a second husband. On her מצבה, it was inscribed names of
both her husbands. ( - אשת כ"ה שמעון , ומלפנים היתה אשת הנגיד  ) 

Shu"t Chasam Sofer (#6:4) is against engraving human faces
on the מצבה. He quotes from the רדב"ז who was against
pictures, even of lions on the Aron Hakodesh.

The מצבות of the מהר"ל & the אליה רבה have lions engraved on them.
The מצבה of the נחלת בנימן has a wolf on it.

According to the Chasam Sofer (רדב"ז), it would  be אסור to
Daven facing the  מצבה  of the מהר"ל, being the lion on the 
מצבה is protruding.
