Special Coffin at Ghana

This is a picture of a special coffin at Ghana. The Ghana people believe that when their loved one die, they will move on to another life, so the Ghana people make sure they do so in style. This is such a honor and respect to build and designed a special coffin for their loved one.

These coffins are specially designed to represent an aspect of a dead person’s life for example a car if they were a driver, a fish if their livelihood was the sea or a sewing machine for a seamstress.

    The smaller coffins are probably for children.
