Shrouds To Purchase

Artist Marti Mcginnis is dedicated to helping people learn more about the concept of the shroud – both as a reminder to live life NOW and as a preparation for death for the ones you leave behind. She has created a brand new body of work of painting on fabric to serve as daily reminders of our mortality and as a focal point for where a loved one might look for helpful information in the event of end of life circumstances.

The links below discuss these topics in detail:


Description

The shrouds in this collection are designed to invite thought, conversation and preparation for one’s own death regardless of your age or current state of health.

Each has been created to serve as a focal point in contemplating what’s next and allowing the viewer space, on a daily basis, to make decisions that support living life to the fullest in the here and now.

Each shroud is designed to hold information to be used by your loved ones to gracefully and legally close out your life with minimal inconvenience. Each has a pocket that can hold notes, photos, flash drives and other means of conveying last wishes, advice and practical information.

The pieces are meant to cover your body, casket or urn as representations of some of your own thoughts about what’s next. Symbols of the cycle of life and the infinite are a theme of this collection. Animals and plants recognized by modern and ancient human culture are present as well.

Final Use

Hang on the wall where you can see on a daily basis. Insert notes or a flash drive you’ve told a trusted friend to know where to find with your final wishes. There are online services where you can safely spell things out in great detail and assign trusted deputies to access after you are gone.

Then use the pieces as shown below for burial or cremation – or have your loved ones keep as an heirloom to re-use after the ceremonies.
