The Levant ceramic cremation urn is based on an ossuary in the form of a house from Azor, in the Levant in the Middle East. It has an internal lidded box and a "cover" for the opening. It is crafted from slabs of earthenware clay with a terra sigillata finish.
This urn is based on a mid-5th to 4th millennium B.C. Chalcolithic ossuary from Azor, in the Levant of the Middle East. These would have been arranged in rock hewn caves on the floor or on benches. Many of these ossuaries were made to represent houses of the time and place. Since each Levant 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 or Burial
Ceramic urns can be kept at home, entombed in a cemetery columbarium niche or buried in an earth grave. Please note some cemetery regulations may require that this urn be placed inside of an urn vault prior to earth burial.
