Eric Adjetey Anang, a carpenter and artist, exhibits his coffin work all over the world. Yes, you read that correctly -- coffins -- but his are made as artistic references either to who the person as they lived or to his/her spirit animal. Humour, colorfulness, playfulness and political statements are often the subject matter here. Eric questions the necessity of leaving life only in sorrow, and encourages the celebration of a full life.
