Fantasy Coffins

There's a new trade that I must make note of - fantasy coffin maker.  Seems as if funeral traditions change around the world,  not just in America.  Craftsmen in Ghana are carving coffins for clients who want to bury their loved ones in something more meaningful than a traditional coffin, something that reflects their trade or something they loved, be it the Bible or beer.

Here are some of wooden caskets that Issac Adjetey Sowah has crafted in Teshi, Ghana.
