Cypress wood was used for building ships and houses by the ancient Phoenicians and Cretans, while the Greeks sculpting statues of their gods with it. Cypress became associated with death and afterlife in Ancient Greek and Roman mythology, when it was dedicated to Pluto (or Hades, god of the underworld).
