Capsula Mundi Project

Italian designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Pretzel have developed an organic burial capsule that will turn the deceased’s body into a source of nutrients from which a tree will grow from their remains.The project is designed to encapsulate the deceased in a fetal position, virtually bringing back the body into the womb. The pod is 100% biodegradable and is buried in the ground, and a seed or young tree is planted above the pod, and as the roots grow down, the tree will use the provided “life-force” to develop. Imagine being able to take your children to a picnic next to a tree that grew from their great-grandmother.
