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. From bluebirds and hummingbirds to stunning butterflies, doves, and lush gardens, we're inspired by the natural beauty found on this earth and want to offer the families we serve the opportunity to shop for gorgeous memorials that will be secure storage for the ashes of the departed.
This collection of urns featuring birds and butterfly designs is dedicated to my grandmother who was so crazy about birds that we named her condo "The Fowl House" due to her enormous collection of bird themed decor. In addition to the statues, figurines, wall art, and Christmas decorations, she had feeders hanging outside and was espeically fond of hummingbirds. She was an avid bird watcher and had books and field guides close by for identification.
Grandmother loved birds, but also all things in nature, the beauty of the trees changing with the seasons. When someone close to her died, she would plant a flower or blooming bush in their memory, preferring plants that would attract butterflies and hummingbirds. We cherish her memory and honor her spirit here.
