The perspective is weird. It looks like it's lying on the ground.

Maybe standing upright?

Underground might work. ;)

It's also a little hard to tell what it is, but that could be because it isn't in the graveyard surrounded by other grave markers.

The reason that it looks like it's a weird perspective is that the base is so large, and the top is so little. (It actually took me a while to realize what the perspective of you stone was, probably due to shading and such a large base.)
Gravestones should be a bit more stereotypical IMO, so they can be easily recognized.

Stones like that are a bit more recognizable, also notice the weathered texture on them.

Your first one looks like a headstone on the ground. I've since realized what you were trying to go for. Make the part that stands up off the ground more obvious. At the moment, it looks like a flat surface on the ground.

How about going for a slightly less straight angle?

I mean is something else, meway. Take a look at these stones from the woodland tileset. I marked the lines where they touch the ground in the lower picture. Note that they are not horizontal.

By not orienting everything to the grid you give your tiles a much more natural impression.
