Prince’s Custom Urn:
Unfortunately, no photos of the urn have surfaced online because tourist photography is prohibited inside the mansion. But, The Current has all the details on the 3D-printed, Paisley Park-shaped urn that now sits in the atrium area of Prince’s home.
“Made of ceramic and glass and measuring 19” x 18” x 14,” the urn features several distinctive elements that reflect the artist’s personality.

What’s Next For Paisley Park:
Paisley Park has been awarded a temporary license to operate as a museum. However, the future of the museum remains unclear. According to Star Tribune, the city council has voiced concerns about “public safety, traffic, parking and the need to gather more information about the facility’s impact on the community.” The area would have to be rezoned to accommodate the estimated 600,000 annual visitors expected to travel to the potential tourist attraction. Chanhassen officials have until December 20th to decide on the rezoning issue.
