Altered art book: page 21 continued

Continuing page 21 of my altered art book:

” She’d be laid out in her coffin, pink satin it’d be with blue trimmings to go with her make-up.”

She sounds like the Late Barbera Cartland doesn’t she.  It seems the dead make a great effort to look their best (well, the undertaker does).  But what about the coffin?  They tend to all look the same, wooden.  I myself quite fancy one of those eco friendly Bio degradable ones.  You can actually paint these yourself, or get it done for you.  Look at this one!

Reminds me of the Ancient Egyptians.  Coffins now can be any shape, including space ships, cars, just about everything to reflect the life and loves of the dearly departed.

Like this guitar shaped one from Vic Fearn.  Here are the top ten coffins.

 Actually, the more this book goes on, the darker it’s becoming…lets hope the light is at the end of the tunnel or chapter.
