Coffin Of The Week (3)

I always think that it is worth giving a little thought about how you want your funeral to go. When you get down to it, there’s a lot to consider.

Take the coffin. Do you go traditional, sustainable, or something a little different, designed to put a smile on the mourners’ faces? If the latter, you might want to bear in mind Dying Art, a company based in Auckland in New Zealand.

Run by Ross Hall it is a custom coffin business, which transforms specially-made blank coffins with fibre board and plywood to add some detail and uses a latex digital printer for the design. Depending upon the design, the coffins can cost between $3,000 and $7,500 NZD. Among the designs Ross has created are a fire engine, a sailing boat complete with cabins, sail, rudder and metal railings, Lego blocks, and a chocolate bar.

The inspiration came when Ross sat down to plan his own funeral. He has chosen a red box with flames on it. His cousin, Phil Maclean, was sent off in a doughnut-shaped coffin, prompting an initial gasp from the mourners and then a wave a laughter.

If you’ve got to go, do it in style. For more details follow the link below:
