It looks like a casket for a king, doesn’t it? Well, a king was indeed buried in it. It was the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. In 2009, Michael was carried inside this Promethean casket to the Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Los Angeles where he was buried.

The casket itself is entirely made of solid bronze. And as if that is not enough, 14K gold plating is done throughout the whole casket’s exterior. As for the interior, it features beautiful blue velvet which goes along with the gold color very well.

When someone as big as Michael Jackson dies, you need a casket to suit his name. And this Promethean casket did just that!

For your information, the casket has been available even before Michael’s passing. Some celebrities and billionaires are known to buy this high-end casket for their loved ones’ funerals. And this gold-plated bronze casket is available for purchase at $25,000.
