Our Pearled Nautilus and Turtles Over Burl Cremains Encased in Glass Cremation Sculpture is a beautiful handmade sculpture consisting of a natural pearled nautilus with hand-blown glass turtles and tentacles over a burl, accented with artificial air plants. The cremains are seen on the bottom of the turtle in a clear window. The result is a breathtaking memorial of your loved one. You have the option to have the artist sign your loved ones name on the back of the turtle in 22k gold. Note: Grave site soil can be used in place of ashes.
The symbolism associated with turtles include longevity, strength, courage, knowledge, security, tenacity, persistence, and innocence. They are symbols of immortality and are considered the temporary dwelling space for souls making their way through a series of lives on their path to heaven.NOTE:

Warranty Against Breakage
This piece is warranted by the artist against breakage as long as you own it. Let's face it, things happened, a pendant falls on a tile floor and breaks. Don't worry, it's a simple repair and it will be done for free (a small shipping fee will apply). No additional cremains are needed. (there is no warranty on the sterling silver chain).
