Paa Joe and Jacob Tetteh-Ashong

Considered one of the most important Ghanian coffin makers of his generation, Paa Joe creates figurative coffins in the shape of spectacular objects and forms. Following a tradition of burial rituals and artistic crafts in Ghana, the fantasy coffins are modeled after consumer objects, such as cars, sneakers, and cameras, as well as animals ranging from lions and fish to eagles and chickens.
