Cloud in Heaven / Cinerary casket

Cloud in Heaven
Cloud in Heaven

The best destiny for the dead is riding a cloud to the heaven. “Mum, where has granny gone?” Seeing the cloud-shaped cinerary casket, the kid asked. “She has gone up into clouds and lived forever there in the heaven.” Mum’s romantic account will start a trip down the memory lane. Hereby, something heavy and taboo would turn soothing and warm. Thus, the notion of death has changed.
The cloud-shaped casket has softly suggested cremation, which transforms love to the dead into the love of the environment. Under the scarcity of land resources, cinerary caskets do good to the use of the land.
