The Serenity Cremation Urn for Ashes has been skilfully handcrafted into a modest rounded shape by artisans based in Italy.  
 
This wooden urn has been sculpted into a simple figure and incorporates a carving of a religious cross symbolising the faith and humility that your loved one may have had. It is a very dignified piece to rest the precious ashes of your loved one. 

The carefully carved wood has been sculpted to deliver a surface which feels smooth to the touch, providing you with a sense of tranquillity when the urn is held. Whilst this wooden urn was designed to be within your home, it can also be buried in the ground - as this type of wood will naturally decompose between 2 - 5 years and your loved one's ashes will be released into the earth. 

Our Serenity Wooden Cremation Urn can be opened by unscrewing the top, allowing you to lift off a section of the urn and securely place the ashes inside. This urn for ashes is available in three different types of wood such as, Swiss Pine, Spruce, and Beech Wood – all of which can be painted in either silver or gold. This urn is also available in both an adult and large adult size. 

Authentic gold leaf is created by hammering gold into very thin sheets which vary in gold content and weight. It is approximately 91.7% gold, equating to 22 karat. Gold has been a symbol of opulence from the beginning, with Greek ideology that by looking upon the gold sculptures, a viewer could better themselves.

The process of layering gold leaf over a surface is called gold leafing or gilding. In order to add the gold leaf to a surface it must first be prepared with a surface paint, then applied with adhesive followed by, burnishing, cleaning, pre-paint sealing, painting, and a final post-paint sealing. Ultimately, applying gold leaf is challenging and a lot of careful work is required in order to achieve the perfect painted gold leaf surface.

Throughout history, gold leaf has been used to portray many things. In the Medieval Era, halos of gold leaf were used in art to signify the heavenly or unearthly, much like your loved one who has left our world. Similarly, in 17th century Japan, gold leaf was used to evoke a celestial feeling towards the heavens.
