Urn — The most common funerary symbol after the cross, the urn is a traditional symbol of death because of its ancient use for holding ashes. The urn is also a symbol for a house or dwelling. When the urn is draped, it means a “house of mourning.” The design mimics the funeral urn of the ancients.
Citizens of America and Europe in the 18th century viewed urns entirely differently, they didn’t think funerals and ashes, they thought noble simplicity, beauty, and reason. They became a favored motif in antiquity.
A type of vessel with a footed base, high shoulder and with or without handles and lids, urns were a ubiquitous symbol for furniture, the decorative arts and architecture during the Neoclassic period, culminating centuries of the symbol’s appearance.
