Last week we told you Prince's urn was a replica of Paisley Park, and made right here in Minnesota by Foreverence.

And now we have our first clear look at the artful display.

Foreverence, which is based in Eden Prairie, uses 3-D printing to create one-of-a-kind urns. 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.”

And here's what it looks like, with video and photos sent to GoMN by Foreverence:

That clip shows a good look at the inside. Here is the urn in the light, both closed and open.

The urn is a 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.

Prince's urn is on display at Paisley Park.
