Mosaic Tableaux at Cypress Lawn


Cremated remain niches use many forms of fronts: stone, bronze, open faced…and tiled. Cypress Lawn has two tile pictorial wall niche displays, each tile made of a multitude of tiny pieces, representing one-of-a-kind works in mosaic funerary art. Both are on the West Campus near one another in the Garden of Light and the Garden of Serenity. Each niche spot can accommodate two cremated remains.

There are one hundred and forty niches in this tableau
