Recalling the God,
Reconstitution of the divine bodies. Construct an urn, a vessel for the beings that gives a new body to their essential lives and allows for the tending of their memory through a spatial and temporal interaction. The urn tells a the mythic story of the beings yet again, and in perpetuity. The qualities and manner of acting which characterizes the ceremony in unmaking the object-beings, are now to be translated into those of making their bodies anew.
The urn contains, embodies. and is vehicle for the being's sacrificial 'remains'. Just as the life of the being was not necessarily in the physical integrity of the object, its 'remains' are not necessarily the physical residue of the ceremony. What remains of the object-being is its essence revealed in the ceremony. The purpose of the urn is not to display the 'remains', but to enable them to 're-enlivened' through the interaction with the urn in tending to the being's memory, just as wine ritually poured over ash and bones in an ancient funerary urn symbolically restored them to life.
