Teshie Coffins

Ghana.  In the Town of Teshie are celebrated coffin makers.  They will carve a coffin in whatever shape you like (planes, cars, lions, etc.).   This was a novel idea for me. What shape would I want for my coffin?  Looking out from one of the shops, these photos were taken in 2008.

Coffins carved of wood

The guide said these were probably for those in the poultry business.
