Seth Kane Kwei ( 1922–1992 ) was a carpenter joiner established in Teshie, in the suburbs of Accra in Ghana. He is considered as the inventor at the beginning of 1950s of the design coffins or fantasy coffins,[1] called Abebuu adekai (" boxes with proverbs ") by Ga people that is the dominant ethnic group of the region of Accra. The use of these coffins during the burial in Ga country became widespread from the beginning 1960s, becoming de facto a real tradition. Design coffins are acknowledged as symbolic of the contemporary creation in Africa. (Source: Wikipedia)
