Cows in a Field Cardboard Coffin
A surprisingly popular choice, our cows cardboard coffin will lift the spirits at a funeral ceremony with the breath of fresh air brought by its blue skies strewn with white, fluffy clouds and rich, green grass. In many cultures, the humble cow is in fact symbolic of, and allied to, the concept of Mother Earth. The cow is a symbol of fertility, abundance, nurturing and power; but for many people, it also carries messages of patience, of a calming influence and of being grounded and at one with the universe. It is no surprise, then, that the cow is India’s most sacred animal and its holiness is much revered by Hindus and Buddhists particularly.
It is also a reminder to many of the richness and beauty of the British countryside – the black and white cows pictured are Friesians, a traditional sight across the UK since at least the 19th century. For those concerned about the planet, the beauty of cardboard coffins is that they are more environmentally friendly than wooden coffins because they are 100% biodegradable when buried and give off far lower emissions when used in a cremation.
