Drawing inspiration from the allegory of the phoenix, the artist Cocomir has produced this urn, which uses for its base a pyramid at whose vertex two swallows take off in eternal flight.
This is surely the most beautiful way of giving form to and honouring the memory of a loved one. The two swallows are made of bronze treated with two different patinas whilst the pyramid and container are of cor-ten steel.
Ancient Egypt’s palm and papyrus columns represented the road to Heaven. This urn conveys this allegory, with the aesthetic matt treatment conferring upon its high quality steel a particularly attractive appearance.
An allegory of the column, the MIRROR CYLINDER evokes the former’s origins: the architecture of woodlands, where columns took the place previously occupied by the trunks of the trees.
The recurrent figure of the swallow, that most mysterious and poetical of birds, has inspired artist Cocomir to create this urn, which offers a beautiful allegory our deepest, most intimate feelings.
This urn, with its structuralist forms and composition, is made up of two materials: iron and Czech class which, masterfully combined, make up an impressive and aesthetic sculpture in the avant-garde style.
According to tradition, the base of the pyramid represents the Earth and its vertex heaven. To this shape, fused with symbolism, we have applied a brilliant chromed finish to endow it with a spectacular presence.
