World Most Bizarre Coffin Ever



This might be the world's weirdest and bizarre coffins, all of these coffins below was really wacky and weird, i think there's no one in this world would use that coffins. actually if we look at the definition of coffins, A coffin (also known as a casket in North American English) is a funerary box used in the display and containment of deceased remains – either for burial or cremation

Ok now let's see the world's most bizarre coffins ever.. and let's decide which one will suit you on your burial next day :D just kidding

Coke bottles, Nokia phones, Shoes and Airplains Ghana's Fantasy Coffins



For the Ga tribe in coastal Ghana, funerals are a time of mourning, but also of celebration. The Ga people believe that when their loved ones die, they move on into another life — and the Ga make sure they do so in style. They honor their dead with brightly colored coffins that celebrate the way they lived.

The coffins are designed to represent an aspect of the dead person’s life — such as a car if they were a driver, a fish if their livelihood was the sea — or a sewing machine for a seamstress. They might also symbolize a vice — such as a bottle of beer or a cigarette.



A Perfect Eggsecution



“Go to work on an egg” used to be an old marketing slogan in the United Kingdom. However, going to the afterlife in an egg may be seen by some as taking it too far. Personally, I am with Woody Allen on this one - it’s not that I don’t like death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens. Even more so if my relatives had planned to do a Faberge on me. Eggsactly!

For Die Hard KISS Fans The Kiss Kasket



Die hard fans can have a KISS goodbye with the "Kiss Kasket". It is decorated with the logo and pictures of the band members; plus: it is waterproof. The Kiss Kasket went on sale in 2001 until 2006; now it's no longer available from Kiss' website.

If You’re Not Chicken



So, what did come first, the chicken or the egg? In this case, the chicken. Slightly strange coffins have been all the rage for an age in Ghana, and this is a prime example of their style. Perhaps too much white meat is bad for you after all, and you know what they say: the first symptom of heart disease can be quite irritating - sudden death.

Corks, guitars and sports bags Vic Fearn's Coffins




One can only hope that it is the base of this guitar-shaped coffin in which the intended is supposed to lie, and not the whole thing. Whether by accident or by nature, this person would have to have been giraffe-man in order to make a proper fit. Decca records, when they refused to sign the Beatles, said that they didn’t like the sound of the nascent super group and that the guitar was on its way out. To be replaced by what exactly? The stylophone? Perhaps Rolf Harris can have one made in that particular shape when he climbs his very own stairway to heaven!



The speciality coffin was just one of many made by a firm whose trade has doubled in the last 12 months, thanks to a boom in bizarre caskets. UK's Vic Fearn and Company has made a pint of beer-style coffin for a keen drinker who fitted snugly into the tulip glass replica. Craftsmen have also created a fast food fan's hot dog coffin, complete with replica onions and mustard. Another customer, a music lover, was buried in a guitar. The most bizarre request received by the firm in Bulwell, near Nottingham, was for a coffin with a removable glass lid. The satisfied customer then used it as a coffee table before he died.

Pine Away Pineapple



This is another one from those whacky Ghanaians. One can only hope that the person who ordered this coffin just grew them for a living. Or perhaps his relatives bought it posthumously as an ironic au revoir to him and his proclivities. Or perhaps, as Sheridan once said, he (or she) was the very pineapple of politeness. Whatever that means.
The Tree of death Capsula Mundi, a biodegradable coffin



The most earthly looking eco-coffin that we’ve found is the Capsula Mundi, created by a pair of Italian designers who wanted to remove the taboo from the burial process and give it a new conception.

The Capsula Mundi is an egg-shaped container made of bioplastic. The body of the deceased rests in a fetal position within this capsule, which gets planted in the earth like a bulb. A shallow circular depression is dug above the capsule to symbolize the presence of the body, in the center of which a tree is planted. Over time, the groups of burial sites become a sacred memorial grove. The Capsula Mundi has made appearances as a design piece in exhibitions around Europe, including one with Droog Design last year. As a show piece, the design is a quintessential representation of a sprouting seed, perfectly encapsulating the designers’ goal of regarding death as an opportunity to nourish the earth for the future.

One For the Vampires?



Well, one thing you can say about vampires is that death becomes them. I can imagine Lestat taking a fancy to this little number, then becoming bored with it and possibly going for something quite different again. This looks like a small coffin, though. Perhaps it was made for a vampire child who hadn’t been taught not to run with wooden stakes. One more thing: if Dracula can’t see his own reflection in the mirror, why is it that his hair is always so immaculate?

Coffin jewelry, furniture, storage boxes... and yes, actual coffins for burial Coffin it Up



From it's website: "Coffin making is no longer something that is commonly done here in the United States. Coffins as burial receptacles have been replaced with modern day caskets, and cremation urns. However, coffins are still widely used in Europe and other countries. Coffin It Up features coffin furniture, jewelry and storage boxes, and actual coffins for burial"
