A Stupa is a Buddhist funerary monument or reliquary. The Stupa urn is a porcelain model of a Tibetan style Stupa called a Chorten. It is constructed in several hollow sections that stack together.
A Stupa is a symbol of enlightenment and is one of the most ancient icons of Buddhist art. Stupas appear throughout Buddhist communities around the world as both architectural structures and small models. They are in essence three dimensional mandalas and symbolize the structure of the cosmos. Stupas can take many different forms depending on the culture. They emerge from Chaitya in Nepal, Chedi in Thailand, Tap in Korea, and Thap in Vietnam.
Since each Stupa ceramic cremation urn is special and one-of-a-kind, please allow for slight variations in color, texture, and size.
A Beautiful Ceramic Urn
Ceramic is made by heating raw materials, usually clay, in a kiln. The word "ceramic" comes from the Greek word keramikos, meaning pottery. Because ceramic cremation urns are often created, or thrown, by hand, please allow for slight variations in color, texture, and size.
Perfect for Home Display
Since this urn has been painstakingly crafted down to the last intricate detail, it is intended to be kept at home. However, this urn can also be entombed in an oversized cemetery columbarium niche or buried in an earth grave. Please note that some cemetery regulations may require the use of an urn vault prior to earth burial, but due to the large size of this urn, a standard-sized urn vault cannot be used.
