is a project of biodegradable urns
with a new kind of burial ceremony at the sea
in reference to Slavic tradition
using local materials and technology
The Project responds to the growing need for burial not related to any existing funeral ceremony but in accordance with Polish law. More and more people lead a nomadic lifestyle without attachment to the place and the earth, so thus the traditional forms of farewell have become archaic. The Project raises also the problem of ecology, without contributing to the further exploitation of existing necropolis, it also allows for proper burial as part of the funeral allowance. For the purpose of the project was developed new technology and material for the production urn. The production process is simple and environmentally friendly, allows for cooperation with local craftsmen or socially excluded people. The project itself involves the utmost respect for human ashes, as well as relate to local traditions and beliefs, without prejudice to the existing ethics and social norms.
