The Angel of Grief® Art Cremation Urn is an incredible depiction of the weeping angel monument sculpture made in 1894 by William Wetmore Story, an American poet and sculpture, for his wife Evelyn. The inscription reads, “The bud was spread to show the rose our Savior smiled the bud was closed. Anon". His beautiful monument was placed in the Protestant Cemetery in Rome.
This beautiful mourning angel leans on the urn, mourning the loss of the loved one within. The angel sculpture is made of resin, and the urn is hand made in the USA of fine rich walnut.
Since the art is not permanently attached to the urn base, many of our customers keep the art and wood urn together for a period of time. When the time comes, they place the urn base into a casket with a loved one that has passed or bury the urn base. Then the art is kept as a family heirloom.
Size & Measurements:
This bottom loading urn is 200 cubic inches, large enough for an adult. It measures 8 1/2" across by 13 1/2" tall by 6 1/2" deep.
It is an elegant choice for home display. We can laser engrave into the wood urn with four lines of engraving. Here is an example of what we can do:

I received my BEAUTIFUL urn (Angel of Grief) yesterday for my son Elliott. I can not tell you how much I love it. It is absolutely exquisite! We had taken our time for the pain to lessen since his demise and wanted to carefully choose a final resting place for his remains. The Angel expresses our deep anguish for the loss of our only son and the wood urn is engraved so tastefully.
Thank you so much.

This Angel of grief urn is beyond my expectations! I purchased it for my beloved mother. As soon as I saw it I knew it was perfect, as the statue was one of her favorites. The pictures do not do the urn justice, so much more beautiful in person. The engraving and inscription are wonderful. Customer service was great. Thank you for helping me during a difficult process.
