Paa Joe clearly takes pride in his work, even if it does end up 9 feet underground. Carving one-of-a-kind coffins, he creates pieces that are more art than anything else.

Based in Ghana, Paa Joe's coffins are currently on display in London at the Jack Bell gallery. From cars to planes to fish and more, he has handcrafted some of the most spectacular coffins I have ever laid eyes on. If you truly love your recently deceased relative, you may want to commission a coffin from Paa Joe. Stats for Corn-Carved Coffins Trending: Older & Mild
