Why Does Maarva’s Funeral Procession Say Sky and and Stone in Star Wars Andor?

“Sky and stone” is a traditional funeral chant on Ferrix, that fits with the somber music and slow walking pace. Although its meaning wasn’t explicitly revealed in the show, sky likely represents life and stone likely represents death; manifesting itself through the brick created from Maarva’s ashes.

Ferrix has certainly developed strong traditions to honor those who came before them and those who died fighting to preserve their hardy way of life.

As sad as her funeral was, it tied together the storylines of Andor to form a natural conclusion: Dedra Meero and Syril Karn both came to capture Cassian, while Luthen, Cinta and Vel worked together to kill Cassian upon his capture. Cassian eludes the ISB and confronts Luthen with an offer to join the Rebellion, and he once again leaves Ferrix aboard the Fondor.
