A Bird Feeder Made From Human Ash.

Artist Nadine Jarvis uses human ash and bird food to make a bird feeder. The person is reincarnated through the life of the bird.

The Bird Feeders are available in two constructions: one being a solid casting of bird food, beeswax and ashes, and the other, rotationally molded with the ashes held inside.

Over time birds land on the perch (inscribed with the deceased name) and slowly eats the feeder, completing a rather disturbing circle of life.
.
After the feeder has completely disintegrated, the perch containing information about the deceased is the only thing left and becomes a keepsake.
