Fantasy Coffins from Ghana


I think what I enjoy most about these coffins is the humorous celebration of a life that has come to an end.  The coffin, itself, seems to be a flash-in-the-pan as the investment of its making exceeds the longevity of its display.  In the end, I find this to be a very poetic mirroring of the life of a loved one.
