>Ghana’s Wonderful Fantasy Coffins

> This is how I with to leave this world. Carefully put to my last rest in hot, red chili fruit. Remembered like a fiery person.

The only country in this world where funderals are “celebrated” (more on that here) and where my wish could be executed (pun not intended) is my hot and fiery home country, Ghana. But, maybe it doesn’t have to be a chili, I can also choose a Coke Bottle, a Sardin Jar or a larger-than-life (I can’t help myself!) mobile phone.

More on Ghana’s exquisite sculpture coffins, sometime called fantasy coffins, here, here , here and here (the last from the National Museum of Funeral History, the second last from DeathOnline.net!) I can also really recommend this coffee table book on the topic.
