Ga coffins: an African Ferrari

In 2003 a Russian art gallery commissioned a wide range of pieces for an exhibition in Moscow. The apprentice carpenters Samuel and Daniel created some magical pieces. One of them was this Ferarri.
There were no Ferraris in Accra but Samuel and Daniel worked entirely from photographs.  As usual their attention to detail combined with the clever paintwork created a Ferrari that captured the spirit of the real thing. If you want to race into the afterlife this is the way to go!

This is how it all started... Samuel with the side wing
