Lay Your Loved One to Peaceful Rest With a Beautiful Bird Urn

Choosing an urn with a beautiful bird detail will evoke peace and acceptance, making these urns the perfect resting place. However, apart from the message the urn conveys, its practicality is of the utmost importance. Aluminum is the ideal material for urns, as it's lightweight in comparison to brass.

Once you've chosen the perfect urn, consider how you want to lay your loved one to rest. Although urns are often displayed at home, some decide to scatter their loved one's ashes in a meaningful spot, while others opt to store the urn in a columbarium or a designated room called a niche. Moreover, there's a growing interest in having the ashes buried in a tree pod to make them part of a new life, so you have plenty of choices at your disposal.

FAQ

What do birds signify when it comes to death?

Ancients believed that after death, the soul leaves the body in the form of a bird and that birds were messengers to the gods. Birds often appear on grave markers and cremation urns, as they symbolize the freedom of the spirit. In fact, a bird in flight can represent a soul that's now free from its body.

Does a red cardinal on an urn have spiritual significance?

It’s a popular notion that cardinals are often seen as messengers from our loved ones. Just their presence symbolizes a myriad of ideals, thoughts, and feelings. One of the obvious qualities of a cardinal is its red color, which symbolizes faith, power, importance, and vitality, reminding us that we're an important component in the circle of life. For Christians, red symbolizes the "blood of Christ," as well as the hope they received from His resurrection.

How long can you keep ashes in an urn?

Cremains can last in an urn for a very long time, as long as the urn has a strong seal on the lid to keep the ashes safe.
