: Inside Ghana's Novelty Coffin Industry :
Are you tired of the same box design created for coffins. Would you like to buried in a specially made container? Any design, any fantasy that you can conjure up to lay at rest for eternity can be found here....
The workshop of one of the most well-known fantasy coffin carvers in the world is squeezed between a barbershop and a clothing store, in the shadow of a three-story Melcom supermarket. In front of the workshop, children skitter through the dirt and women sell fried yam, cell phone credit, and balls of fermented corn mash called kenkey. A generator’s incessant hum fills the air, alongside the echoing calls of the passing tro-tros and the ubiquitous tune of high-life music. Above the shop, a faded wooden fish hangs above a plank with “KANE KWEI COFFINS” painted in black block letters. Inside, Eric Adjetey Anang and his carpenters are spearheading the creation of Ghana’s most fascinating and internationally renowned artistic product: abebuu adekai, or fantasy coffins.

LifeGem introduces a diamond created from ashes on the NBC Today Show in 2002 
Memories are one of the best legacies that exist after the death of someone loved.
Renowned artist Beverly Albrets, who specializes in glass etchings, carvings, stained glass and hand blown glass artwork, has turned her talents to create a living memorial for those who have lost their very special loved ones.
Beverly came up with the idea of incorporating the ashes into her art work, creating a mystically beautiful piece of glasswork
Cremation is becoming more customary and therefore the desire for more unique memorial options is also increasing particularly ones that help preserve the memory of and keep the spirit alive of our loved ones.
Many people would like an artistic way to preserve the memory of a loved one after death. Some people have kept the ashes of a loved one's remains in urns or boxes for years. Blown glass artwork is beautiful to begin with - combining the cremated remains of a loved one with glasswork creates a loving memorial for both family and friends.
