    #27 seems like an awful lot of work for something you're going to bury in the ground.

      Where is the cupcake coffin? Speaking of which, Martha, you must be involved in Boston's Cupcake Crawl.

        Not yet, but I've been asked. Working on logistics at the moment. 🙂

        • http://echogeo.wordpress.com/ echogeo

          Cool. Please let me know.

    • jobvindex

      Like my life

      • FunKiller

        Detailed, but kind of worthless?

    • Hara

      I'd rather get this work at this price that what you'd pay for a cheapass, mass-produced coffin here in the States.

        Here's some news for ya: any custom case is way cheaper than regular mass-production cases. Why? Monopoly, that's why.

        – I don't want to be buried.
        Why? Because I'm not dead yet!

        Anyone else notice a lot of these are to small? Some of em must either be for animals or children

      They're too beautiful. Like #16; they're not ghana bury that one.

    • FunKiller

  • callmeuncle

    It's cool because they are coffins but don't look like coffins.

    • Watson

      Nice work, Sherlock.

    • windowlicker



    Been there….and have seen these coffins first hand…this is popular all over Ghana. It's pretty cool but at the same time more interesting for the living. It was originally meant to be for religious purposes but like most things, morphed into the ridiculous!

    #33 If you can make them round like that can you make mine like the bust of Kate Upton?

    • OhioChiver

      Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to heaven of course. 😉

    • FunKiller

      Well ya see, it's a chicken and……..yea, I have no idea.

  • NotSoNinja

    #14 The only time I've ever "awww'd" for a baby coffin…..

    • 3rd world

      • anna

    Very personal, could #18 be his own?

    • boobman

      it's kind of plain

      • justcurious

        well played

    • guest

      My grandfather was buried in one of these. I'm from the town (Teshie) where this is located. My grandfather was a carpenter. His was of a different color though.

  • mazurati

    Pretty sure I saw these on The Amazing Race one season

  • Lisa

    Do not want. :-p Ever.

    When I die, just let me go. Pine box, no box, whatever. Cremation works for me. Then y'all get drunk and have a hell of a party. 😉

    • FunKiller

      I'm with ya…celebrate my life, don't mourn my death.

      • A BiPolar Guy

        I told my wife to just dump my body w/o ID if I die t home, and let the county take care of it. Not fair to the taxpayer, but she'd never do it anyway seriously though, cremate me or feed me to the fish. Cemeteries are a waste of land and other resources.

    I would rather have a Viking funeral. If not, I want to be buried in a Tie-Fighter.
