Cremations Solutions, ‘[y]our complete source for scattering urns and accessories’, offers personal urns which are created from the image of the deceased. The large containers, which feature lifelike features, but no hair, can hold an entire loved one’s ashes, and cost only US$2,600.

Personally, I think the Personal Urn is the stuff of nightmares. Since discovering this site, I would now quite specifically like a clause written into my will prohibiting the storage of my ashes in one of these freaky things, not only for the sake of my departed soul, but for my family members and friends, who should not have to suffer the dead stare of my hairless, lifeless, decapitated head.
