What to look for when selecting an urn for a man
In many cases, family members want to find an urn for a deceased loved one to show off their personality. An good way to match a personality is often to think about their role in people’s lives. For example, if you are looking for an urn for your grandfather, you may want one tailored towards grandfathers or grandparents. Many urn stores, like Eirene Urns, offer these kinds of personalized urns, so it is an excellent place to start your search. See urns for men here.
A good place to start is in choosing an urn that includes symbols and colours typically associated with men.
For example, in Greek mythology there many well defined masculine attributes. For example, the god Zeus is known for being a strong ruler and protector. If those attributes match a special man in your life that has died, it is a good way to identify traits you'd like an urn to represent.
You may want an urn that displays imagery associated with Zeus, such as lightning, an eagle, or an oak tree. Oak trees are also associated with honour, nobility, and wisdom; common things one might associate with a male figure, such as a father.
Urn by materials
You can also select an urns by material. Wood urns occur as warm, strong and traditional. Marble urns match with strength, masculine and smooth. Metallic urns suggest modern, smart and innovative. Or choose an avant guard design. These one of a kind wood urns, suggest unique, eco-conscious, outdoor-lover.
