Why should creative expression end when we have passed on? Anang Kwei of Ghana and his children are determined not to let it end because it is part of what makes us human. Kwei and his family are helping the families of the deceased celebrate their loved ones with custom-made, handcrafted coffins. The deceased’s family can choose whatever they want to represent an aspect of their loved one’s life, and the Kwei family will deliver a fantasy coffin. The family is making custom coffins all the way from colorful fish to cars or tools.
