Roadside Caskets for Sale

A Ghanaian funeral is quite the send off.  It is in many ways a celebration of that person's life.  Everyone from the community or village comes, usually dressed in black or black and red.  There is music and food and it lasts most of the day.  

If you prefer a traditional casket, those are available right at the side of the road.  And they look very nice.  

If you want to acknowledge something special about this person, there are customized caskets unlike anything we have ever seen before.   Nice tennis shoe.

If you are a Ghanaian fisherman, this could be the perfect casket for you.

I love the red chile pepper.  Remember that Gregg,  just in case.  These are a work of art, and very imaginative.
