What is 6 feet tall, weighs 500 pounds and will serve as the fiery vessel for the wishes and offerings to lost loved ones on Sunday night?

If you guessed the All Souls Procession's newly constructed finale urn, we are impressed.

The stainless steel structure, a dodechahedron made up of 60 intricately crafted triangle pieces, was designed by procession organizer Paul Weir and artist Thomas Valentine.

Weir said the urn was created in part to celebrate the expectations around 2012.

"I wanted to make another commemoration of that with a special piece," he said.

Weir helped assemble the structure along with a team from Creative Machines, a custom fabrication business on Tucson's south side run by metal artist Joe O'Connell.

O'Connell and his crew assembled the previous urn, which had been the centerpiece of the event's finale since 2005.

O'Connell calls the procession the heart and soul of Tucson and loves that his company's work plays such a pivotal role each year.

"I would call it pride, but it is actually more of a humbling experience to be part of something so much bigger than yourself," he said.
