You can place your own photo in this Bell Shrine urn and remember someone just as you wish: with a photo of a moment, a face, a landscape or a text. The photo is easily placed between two pieces of Selenite, which are translucent so that the entire photo is visible. Because the glass bell is easy to lift, it is very easy to place and change the photo.
This size urn (0.7 liter) is often used to put some of the ashes in. The remaining ashes are scattered or distributed among several people.
A silk bag is included to give the ashes a nice and safe place in the wooden base. The glass bell jar is blown in Germany. Since it is handcrafted, each urn may be slightly different from the picture; each urn is unique.
Central place in your life
This unique photo urn with glass was designed to give memories an important place in everyday life. Closer to life and what someone was like. It is an urn that isn’t really seen as an urn, but more as a piece of art: it won’t disappear into the attic or the closet but will proudly stand in plain sight. Grief is part of life and does not come with an end date. Yet the expectation is often that you will recover within a few months. An urn with a picture of a person, a moment, something understated or something very open, can be a starting point for a beautiful conversation. Just because you’re smiling again doesn’t mean you’re no longer grieving. This is precisely why you want to give this urn a central place in your life: to keep the conversation going about someone you have to miss.
Photo urn as a small shrine
The photo urn can also be a valuable part of a small shrine. In addition to the photo, it is possible to add other personal memories in the space. For example, a piece of jewelry, a dried flower, a found shell or a handwritten note. You can choose to light a beautiful candle next to the urn.
Photo urn without ashes
This photo urn can also be used without ashes. For example, if all the ashes have been scattered but you would still like to have a beautiful keepsake. A photo can be placed between the selenite stones under the glass dome and in the wooden container beneath anything can be placed, from personal items to a tuft of hair or a letter. The glass photo urn is only suitable for indoor use.
