From Ghana — bizarre coffins

“The indigenous inhabitants of a small African nation of Ghana believe that the funeral – it is not sad farewell to the deceased, and celebrating the way they move people to a better world. It is here that there was a tradition to put the corpse in the coffin of a special bright intricate shapes.”

Nothing in that paragraph prepared me for these photos.

I guess if I were going to say farewell in this manner, I would have to go with a giant purple Fluevog.
