Small version of the Tree of Life cremation urn is solid brass with rich green enamel, gold trim, and embossed with ancient image of the Tree of Life and celebrates family heritage and eternal life. The ashes are placed into the urn through the top which has a secure threaded lid.
The tree of life is a familiar image that spans across all cultures and dates back to ancient times, even earlier than the Egyptians. This symbol holds religious and spirtual connotations that can mean many things to many people. One theme is the connection that the tree has to both earth and air. Roots that travel to the underworld, branches that lift up to the heavens.
The small urns are a good choice for families that want to preserve a portion of the ashes as a memorial keepsake or plan to spread or bury some of the ashes at a later date.
