Cremation urn Reflecting Confucianism, the MYO / Cremation urn

Cremation urn Reflecting Confucianism, the MYO
Cremation urn Reflecting Confucianism, the MYO

The traditional Korean tomb is a funeral culture that provides a courtesy to ancestors based on Confucianism.
Confucian tombs lay the body on the ground and laid round grass on it. It also keeps track of lawns regularly and reminds them of their ancestors.
Today, however, burials buried in the earth disappear from the environmentally friendly level and cremation culture is established.
So we propose a new concept of cremation urn to connect our religious culture and customs that have suddenly changed.
