Carbon copies

Artist Nadine Jarvis's project  Post Mortem has several  proposals for "alternative treatment for our deceased"

  Nadine Jarvis Pencil

Carbon copies - 240 pencils can be made from a carton of human remains.

Bird feeder  - a  bird feeder made from bird food and human ash.  A person is reincarnated through the bird.

Rest in pieces - like a pinata, a ceramic urn crashes to the ground in 1-3 years after the thread that holds the urn in the air disintegrates.

Personally, I prefer the diamonds.
