After his untimely passing, Prince was cremated. And a man like Prince deserves a legendary memorial – and who better to deliver than a Minnesota company?

Foreverence, which is based in Eden Prairie, uses 3-D printing to create one-of-a-kind urns that "represent an individual's passions and pursuits," their website says. And that's where Prince's family turned for the Purple One's final resting place.

Founder Pete Saari told GoMN Prince's sister and nephew, Tyka and President Nelson, approached the company to help design the urn.

After discussing different elements of Prince's life, Saari said they agreed that "Paisley Park was most important and truly representative of his life and art."

The urn is a 19” x 18” x 14" replica of Paisley Park made of ceramic and glass. It features seven crystals hand-picked by Tyka Nelson to represent the artist's favorite number, Foreverence said in a news release.

The urn also opens up – Saari said the whole front face comes off. Inside, there's lighting and scale-model details from Paisley Park, like the main atrium, Prince's purple Yahama piano, and little white doves.

Saari said it takes about two to three weeks to design a custom urn, and 15 hours to 3-D print. Unfortunately, a photo of Prince's urn is not available at this time.

But lucky fans who visited Paisley Park on Thursday got to see the urn, which was sitting in the atrium, the Pioneer Press reported.

Foreverence has also made urns for legends such as DEVO co-founder, Bob Casale, Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, and Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland.

Fans on social media had mixed feelings about seeing the memorial holding Prince's ashes.
