Cremain-Embedded Pet Art

Skrekkogle is Offering to Paint a Portrait Made From Rover's Remains

— August 20, 2011 — Tech
The folks over at Skrekkogle have imagined a new way to honor pets (and maybe humans) who have passed away. Ceremonies leave you with difficult memories and scattering ashes leave you with nothing at all, so a new tradition that combines both options has been developed.

If you so choose, Skrekkogle is willing to fabricate portraits made from the ashen remains of your beloved pets. Pictured above is one example, highlighting the horror and genuine talent captured by the piece. Although the technique used to graft the ash onto the canvas isn't being discussed, it's sure to involve some kind of witchcraft... and maybe glue.

Although the idea somewhat troubling, it certainly has its appeal. Not only are you given a means of remembering your dog or cat daily, but in a sense, they're still there with you!
Trend Themes
1. Cremation Art - Creating artwork using the ashen remains of deceased pets or loved ones presents an opportunity for personalized memorialization and emotional connection.
2. Alternative Funeral Rituals - The combination of scattering ashes and creating tangible art pieces reinvents traditional funeral practices, offering a unique and memorable way to honor the departed.
3. Memorial Keepsakes - The development of cremain-embedded art opens up avenues for creating personalized memorial keepsakes, providing a tangible way to preserve memories and maintain a sense of presence.
Industry Implications
1. Art and Design - The art and design industry can explore the concept of using cremated remains as a medium, offering new and unique artistic expressions.
2. Funeral Services - Funeral service providers can incorporate cremain-embedded art as an alternative offering, providing customers with more personalized and custom funeral experiences.
3. Memorial Products - The memorial products industry can leverage cremain-embedded art to create innovative products that allow individuals to keep their departed loved ones close and cherish their memories.
