Prince’s Ashes On Display At Paisley Park

Prince’s infamous Paisley Park compound opened up for public tours for the first time ever on Thursday. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the day, as The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports, was the fact that Prince’s ashes are on display in the atrium inside an urn that doubles as a miniature replica of Paisley Park itself.

Made of ceramic and glass, the 3D printed urn was designed Prince sister and nephew, Tyka and President Nelson, in collaboration with Eden-Prairie-based design company Foreverence. It features seven — Prince’s favorite number — iridescent crystals hand-selected by Tyka Nelson, a scale model of Prince’s purple Yamaha piano, and white ornamental doves.

No photography is permitted on the Paisley Park tours, so there aren’t any images of it — you’ll just have to picture it in your head.
