Prince’s Paisley Park Home Opens as Museum

Prince’s spiritual center, Paisley Park, opened its doors last week as a museum where fans are now able to view the singer's one-of-a-kind home where Prince also recorded most of his music. Upon arriving, they discovered that the late singer’s ashes were displayed in a custom-designed urn created by Foreverence with Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson and nephew President Nelson.

The urn is a scale-model of Paisley Park that measures at 14 inches high and 18 inches long with Prince’s famous "Love symbol" adorning the front entrance. The symbol is fashioned in typical Prince-like fashionm with his sister (the co-desinger) having  placed seven iridescent crystals alongside it. The front column shown in the video is where Prince’s ashes lie, and as the door to the model opensa miniature replica of Paisley Park’s grand includes the singer’s puple Yamaha piano and other decorations are revelaed. 

Prince’s sister and nephew worked together with Foreverence on the urn, with the goal of truly capturing the late singer’s digs and aesthetics so that it could be showcased to the public 

“Foreverence has helped hundreds of families tell the stories of their loved ones lives through individually designed, 3D printed, ceramic cremation urns and memorials,” Pete Saari, CEO and founder of Foreverence told People. “Through conversation, photographs and sketches, we arrive at what is the most appropriate and meaningful expression of a person’s life and legacy. We then design and manufacture the perfect memorial.”

One thing is for sure, they definitely nailed it for Prince.
