Prince’s urn is a dazzling mini replica of Paisley Park

Even in his death, the High Priest of Pop will call the expansive compound home


    Whether he was throwing pajama dance parties for the public or simply hanging out with his pet doves, Prince spent much of his time at Paisley Park, the Chanhassen, Minnesota estate which doubled as his place of residence and recording studio. It turns out that even in his death, the Purple One will call Paisley Park his home, as his urn has been glamorously modeled on the 65,000-square-foot compound.

    As People points out, the music icon’s ashes have been placed in a ceramic and glass “scale-model of Paisley Park, measuring 14 inches high and 18 inches long, decorated with Prince’s famous symbol.” Co-designed by Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson and nephew President Nelson, it opens to reveal a mini version of the property’s large atrium, complete with his own signature purple Yamaha piano, ornamental tile flooring, and real working lights. The whole thing is a grand affair, and one that’s fitting for the High Priest of Pop, who always had an eye for the elaborate.

    The urn is currently on display at Paisley Park, which recently opened its doors as a museum. Prince’s final resting place is beside other priceless pieces from the legend’s life, including paintings, custom-made outfits, and handwritten lyrics.

    Update: As Stereogum points out, Foreverence, the company that designed Prince’s urn, also made ones for Lemmy and Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots.
