I am as in love with this image as I am with this project, Capsula Mundi. For a truly green burial, two Italian designers reinvent the coffin as a biodegradable cocoon and replace the traditional headstone with a tree. Beautiful.
This description is from their website - capsulamundi.it/
It’s the first Italian project created to promote the realization of green cemeteries in our country.
Capsula Mundi is a container with an old perfect shape, just like an egg, made with modern material -starch plastic- in which the dead body is put in a fetal position. Capsula Mundi is planted like a seed in the soil, and on a tree is planted on top of it. The tree is chosen when the person is alive, relatives and friends look after it when death occurs. A cemetery will no longer be full of tombstones and will become a sacred forest.
