Always dreamed to be seen as strong as an oak? Capsula Mundi can help

I mentioned few months ago the clever Urban Death project from Katrina Spade which offer sustainable solution for funerals. In Italy, a similar project emerge with Capsula Mundi from Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel.

Here the body is placed in an egg-shaped pod, made of biodegradable material and similar to a seed planted in the ground, they will also plant on the top of this pod, a tree (chosen by the deceased or the family) for it, to grow and becoming then a memorial.
I am not sure about the personification of the tree or the idea of the sacred forest mentioned in their website, but we can only praise this project for offering an additional ecological alternative to our burials.
