Celebration of Life Prayer Wheels from Axis of Hope serve as safe-keepers of special memories – a meaningful letter, photographs, a poem... a feather... a wedding ring...a loved one's ashes. These vessels can be filled with your written prayers, dreams and hopes. As the wheel turns on its pedestal, the images flow, the story unfolds. Depending on the wheel's size, both ashes and special mementos may fit also fit inside.
