Commercial artist advertising sign – coffin maker
This sign measures 48 x 48″ (1.22 x 1.22 m). I commissioned this sign to be painted as a copy of an original which the owner was unwilling to sell to me. Artistic Ghanaian coffins are famous. They can be in the shape of beer bottles, rockets, cars, airplanes, fish, people, anything you can imagine. People are actually buried in them although as their fame has spread around the world they are also now collected as an art form and made that way. Obviously, it is difficult to obtain one that is genuine and used… This coffin maker has diversified, as you can see. The original sign was painted on both sides; I had each side copied as a single signboard. Please see the other sign on this page.
