Creative expression is part of what makes us human — why should that end after we’ve passed on?
In Ghana, Anang Kwei and his children help the families of the deceased celebrate the lives of their loved ones with custom-made, handcrafted coffins. And when we say custom-made, we mean *custom.*
From colorful fish to cars or tools, whatever a family wants to represent an aspect of the life that was, the Kweis will deliver a fantasy coffin made with care and exquisite craftsmanship.
Historically, decorated coffins had only been for Ghana’s royalty. But that changed dramatically in the 1950s when the Kwei’s mother claimed she wanted to fly in an airplane before she died.
