Turns out Prince's love for his home/compound Paisley Park was eternal, and he's got the urn to prove it. According to PEOPLE, the late singer's remains are on display inside his estate in an urn designed to look like the famed compound. The urn was designed by Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, and nephew, President Nelson, and is now housed inside the home, which was opened as a museum last Thursday. Prince died at the age of 57 in April. He was found inside Paisley Park located in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
The Nelson family designed the Purple One's urn with Foreverence artists and created a scale-model of Paisley Park. It even includes a purple and crystal replica of Prince's famed symbol. The scale-model further pays homage to Prince by including a purple Yamaha piano as well as ornamental white doves. And, yes, the lights really do work, as you can see in the video below.
“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.”
