“Death – Festival for the Living” Exhibit
Visitors photograph various custom designed coffins, during the “Death – Festival for the Living” exhibit, at the Royal Festival Hall in London, on Jan. 28. Crazy Coffins, an offshoot of a Nottingham-based traditional coffin and urn maker which took on a new identity in the 1990s when people began asking to customize their final resting places, presents uncanny coffins as part of the exhibit.
