larger than life
even in death
the plumes on the horses
I used to live and work in Hackney in the East End of London. On a couple of occasions I have seen the roads closed for big funerals. Funerals that involved hearses drawn by two black horses.
When I saw these I imagined that the deceased might be some Mr Big from the local criminal underworld. Fittingly, one of these corteges was travelling along Kingsland Road not very far from an old railway bridge that used to have "Reg Kray is innocent" painted along it.
While this literally doesn't translate from "bling," I can imagine a fair bit of bling in the wills.
It could also fit the prompts "black" and "box" of course
