Published Oct 11, 2016With Prince fans now being able to pay homage to the fallen Purple One at his Paisley Park estate, we're now getting more details on what the public memorial/tourist destination has in store. Specifically, photos have emerged of Prince's urn, which is on display at Paisley Park, and it's more than a little amazing.
As new photos published by People reveal, the urn is a miniature replica of the 65,000-square-foot compound. Made of ceramic and glass, it's a "scale-model of Paisley Park, measuring 14 inches high and 18 inches long, decorated with Prince's famous symbol."
That, of course, is what it looks like above.
The urn was designed by Prince's sister Tyka and nephew President Nelson in collaboration with Foreverence. It even opens up, revealing a replica of the estate's atrium, a purple Yamaha piano, tile floor adorned with the Prince symbol and some white doves.

"Foreverence has helped hundreds of families tell the stories of their loved ones lives through individually designed, 3D printed, ceramic cremation urns and memorials," Pete Saari, CEO and founder of Foreverence, told People. "Through conversation, photographs and sketches, we arrive at what is the most appropriate and meaningful expression of a person's life and legacy. We then design and manufacture the perfect memorial."
Foreverence has also recently designed urns for the likes of Lemmy from Motörhead and Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots.
