The Collie is one of the most popular breeds of dog on earth and for myriad good reasons. Collies are known for their intelligence, their kindness, their attentiveness to the needs and even the feelings of their human counterparts, and of course for their handsome looks, what with the lovely coloration of their long, fine coats. Capturing the looks and the spirit of a Collie in hardwood is no easy feat, but it’s just what our artists have achieved after many years of perfecting the art of hand carving and assembling hardwood into unique wooden portraits.
Why so much work put into making these hand carved hardwood depictions of Collies and other breeds of pet? Because these pet portraits adorn the hardwood urns that you can use to memorialize a beloved pet who has passed on.
Carver Dan’s Collie Keepsake Pet Portrait Urns are created entirely by hand, using tools and techniques our artists were given by master craftsman Carver Dan himself and have since honed over years of experience working with carefully selected hardwoods hand carved into the striking pet urns offered today. Our artists use the finest woods that are sourced from furniture makers – these upcycled hardwoods would otherwise have been scrapped and discarded – and never use wood stains or paints, instead allowing the true color and grain of the wood to shine through. Because our wood is all its original, natural color, you can count on your Collie Keepsake Pet Portrait Urn looking great for years to come without discoloring or flaking.
And of course these pet urns are more than just lovely wooden portraits of pets of all type and breed; they are genuine memorial vessels. A hollowed out section carved into the back of every pet urn can house a few of ounces of the cremated remains of your beloved dog so that you and your family can always keep a token of your pet close, and stored safely just behind that charming hardwood depiction of the dog you cherished in life and will remember long after he or she has passed.
If you are looking for the perfect way to celebrate the life of a pet, then you have found it with a Carver Dan Keepsake Pet Portrait, which also make a deeply thoughtful gift for a friend or family member who has lost a four-legged member of their family. We would be honored if one of our hand carved pet urns could serve to soften the sadness of loss and keep warm the happy memories made while a pet was with you or someone you care about.
