Here is a description found in Wikipedia:

The Ga-Adangbe are an ethnic group in the West African nation of Ghana.
The Ga people are renowned worldwide for their funeral celebrations and processions.
The Ga believe that when someone dies, they move to another life.
Therefore, special coffins are often crafted by highly skilled carpenters.
The coffins can be anything wanted by relatives of the deceased from a pencil to any animal such as an elephant.
Coffins are usually crafted to reflect an essence of the deceased, in forms such as a character trait, an occupation, or a symbol of one's standing in the community.
For example, a taxicab driver is most likely to be buried in a coffin shaped as a car.

"Waste of $$$"


dodgers01,
What do you think you can buy traditional coffins at Walmart for $19.97?

Besides, this is Ghana. Those caskets only cost three chickens and a goat.
