‘I want to be buried in a giant pineapple': Demand for bizarre coffins rockets after UK art show by African artist, article by Leon Watson, 26 December 2011
“Demand for 'crazy coffins' - made in the shape of sharks, pineapples and beer bottles - has rocketed after an African carpenter put on a UK art show.
Paa Joe, a 66-year-old master coffin maker from Ghana in West Africa, has rustled up hundreds of coffins in the last few decades - making them in the shape of whatever the deceased desired.
Among the bizarre coffins he has made in the past include ones made to look like mobile phones, pineapples, sharks, coke bottles, beer bottles, chickens, cars and aeroplanes.”
And somebody who's curious.
