The funerary urn is the result of a comprehensive concept study. It is designed as a product system where different parts can be combined and connected with each other.

A cinerary urn being separately lockable is integrated into the funerary urn.

The total filling volume amounts from 210 to 270 cubic inches (3,400 to 4,400 cubic centimetres). The finished product can be fitted with different and customisable paintings and finishes. A look resembling root wood is possible as well. An individualisation based on attached figurines or other attached decorations is also possible. The product is protected by multiple US design patents and community designs of the European Union. In addition, there is a protection by copyright law and competition law. The industrial property rights as well as the know-how are offered for sale. A licensing is possible as well. The invention has not been previously sold or marketed. The price is subject to negotiation.
