Elysium Stories

Meretta’s Story

Our designer Kate Semple had been exploring the idea of “Life Totems” having made a series of totemic-based sculptures for an exhibition. Constructed from a series of elements with a narrative thread linking them visually, she saw this as the perfect way to create a living memorial and legacy to pass on.

These “Life Totems” give an individual the opportunity of taking ownership over the type of memorial chosen to represent their life. The resulting sculpture is to be enjoyed by all in life. It then becomes a personal heirloom and an alternative to a more traditional headstone after death.
