Fancy departing this world in style? Well, burials needn't be boring. In fact, at the Kane Kwei Carpentry Workshop in Ghana, they specialize in designing fantasy coffins that have become symbolic of African artistic creativity. Indeed, some of these caskets are so bizarre that they've ended up on display at the National Museum of Funeral History in Houston, Texas. What's more, there's also a company in England that makes bespoke boxes for the more discerning corpse.
