Memorial Art We Love

The art of creating art for a home funeral

Memorial art, funerary art, momento mori – this is an ancient, ongoing practice of memorializing our loved ones.

Here, we want to keep it simple, and highlight some examples of what families and friends create during home funerals.

Do you have some art to share with us? A painted coffin, prayer flags, special box, rock, painting, garden – it all counts as memorial art. Show us yours on the NHFA Facebook page so others can appreciate it too.
