Funeral products for the burial
A coffin is the main attribute of any funeral ceremony. The funeral practice to bury a deceased in the coffins came to Ukraine with the Christian religion. A coffin is considered to be the final resting place, the house. That is why it must be made from good wood and look well. It is important to consider the size of the coffin according to the measurements of the deceased.
The use of a coffin is obligatory for cremation. And memorial urns are permanent containers for the cremated body. They can be made from plastics or metal. Your personal plans for the final placement of the urn, its quality and decorative appearance can play an important part in the selection process.
A throw is a part of religious tradition. It is customary to cover the body of the deceased up to the waist, and during the ceremony the churchman covers him completely including the face. If the last rites are not planning, a relative of the deceased covers his face before the coffin is closed. The throw must be white – this is a sign of the purity against God and the readiness of the soul to leave this world. It can have religious signs, images, hand embroidery. The fabric can be synthetic or natural – of course, natural materials are better.
With their natural beauty, comforting presence, and symbolic meaning, flowers are an important tradition at funerals in Ukraine as a symbol of the way to paradise. It is common practice to place them on the head of the coffin of the person who passed away. Funeral flower wreaths, in the shape of a circle, symbolize the infiniteness and transition of the soul from the earth to eternity. Wreaths and flowers may be fresh or artificial – for the funeral it is better to choose the fresh flowers, and for the grave design – made from plastic, which will maintain their beauty for a long time
Wreaths and bouquets are usually pleated with mourning ribbons and the last words for the deceased person on them. You can choose a standard ribbon or order the personalized ones.
The tradition of the installation of a cross on a grave goes back centuries – it is associated with the Christian religion. The cross is a bridge, across which the soul of the deceased person goes from the earth to heaven. Lately when the ground settles down it can be replaced by the metal or stone cross.
