Kererū or New Zealand pigeon is the only pigeon endemic to the New Zealand mainland. A large pigeon with distinctive noisy wingbeats. It is an important seed disperser for native trees. Kererū were a significant food source for Māori and were the food of choice for Matariki or Puanga celebrations. The design also features the New Zealand native bird Tūī. This medium-sized bird has green, blue, and bronze colouring with distinctive white throat tuft. It is seen here sitting in a Kōwhai tree.
This picture coffin is beautifully handmade by our master craftsmen and wrapped in a photographic quality image, using the latest technology. The richness of colour and vibrancy of this Expression Coffin is truly stunning.
Each of our Expression Coffins is available with a matching ashes urn.
Expression ashes urns are handcrafted to complement each coffin design; they are both beautiful art pieces and functional ashes containers. The felt covered urn base is simply removed for insertion of an ashes container inside. The external sizes of the urns are: W32cm x H15cm x D22cm. Contact us for more information.
We offset our use of natural materials by operating our Memorial Tree Program. When you purchase one of our coffins, a memorial tree will be planted on your behalf.
The tree will be planted by the Men of the Trees society, who are a non-profit, non-political group dedicated to the reforestation, maintenance and protection of trees in Australia. Your funeral director will supply you with a certificate explaining the Memorial Tree Program.
