Finally, Your Loved Ones Can Keep Your Memory Alive Inside Them
Sure, we leave behind wills and such to ensure our loved ones are taken care of financially after we pass away, but those won't keep our soulmates warm during those cold nights without us. And though there's nothing we can do to fill the hole we'll leave in their hearts. Fortunately, there are other holes.
Mark Sturkenboom"That looks a lot like WALL-E," you might be saying, before you learn where that's all going.
This is 21 Grams, a project by Mark Sturkenboom, an artist from the Netherlands. Sturkenboom was inspired to create a more intimate final resting place after seeing the drab urn his neighbor kept her deceased husband in. "She always speaks with so much love about [her husband] but the jar he was in didn't reflect that at all." By which he apparently meant that the urn clearly couldn't fit into her vagina.
The box contains a drawer to keep mementos in, a docking area for your phone to play some music, a scent diffuser containing the deceased's signature scent, and of course, a glass dildo with a gold-plated urn big enough to ensure nobody feels inadequate in the afterlife.
But slightly more wholesome necrophilia doesn't come cheaply, so to speak. Getting all up in those 21 grams will cost $8,700. That price tag also includes a beautiful gold-plated brass key that your significant other can wear around their neck for the times they feel the sudden urge to quickly get into your box.
