Birds and Butterflies are a symbol of freedom, earth and air. Ancients believed that after death, the soul leaves the body in the form of a bird and were messengers to the gods. Many of our families have requested urns with these images to honor the spirit of their loved one.
Custom urns in bird and butterfly themes are available in several different sizes to accommodate varying amounts of cremains. Usually, the ashes for an adult will fit in a 200 cubic inch capacity urn. A good rule to use when determining ash volume is:
One pound of body weight = One cubic inch of volume.
