Prince‘s final resting place has been revealed.

The late star’s remains are being held in a custom urn co-designed by his sister Tyka Nelson and nephew President Nelson.

Tyka and President teamed up with Foreverence artists “on an original concept that symbolized the Prince’s home, recording studio and sanctuary,” according to a press release.

The urn is currently on display at Paisley Park, which opened its doors Thursday morning for fans to visit and pay tribute to the Purple Rain singer.

The ceramic and glass urn is covered by seven iridescent crystals that were chosen by Tyka, who placed the final jewel in the piece herself. According to the release, the urn also features scale-model details from Paisley Park, including the atrium, the singer’s purple Yamaha piano and white ornamental doves.

“We are truly honored and humbled to work with Prince’s family to pay tribute to one of the greatest musical artists of our generation,” Pete Saari, CEO and founder of Foreverence, says in a statement. “We believe that everyone’s a legend to the people who love and miss them the most.”
