Artsworld :: Coffins to die for in Ghana

About 50 years ago, a Ghanaian angler started a trend when, upon his death, he was buried in a wooden coffin shaped like a fish. Today, cab drivers are buried in wooden taxis, preachers in Bible-shaped boxes and smokers in coffins shaped like cigarette boxes. Artsworld explores this macabre but colourful art form in the Ghanaian capital, Accra.
