Coffin miniatures

Miniature coffins are no longer made only by Paa Joe’s apprentices. Today there are several workshops where artists create miniatures, and they are no longer mainly the work of apprentices, but also of the masters. And artists like Kudjoe Affutu create their miniatures not only for art collectors and galleries, but to develop new coffin models or to test new materials.

Most miniatures shown here were made by Kudjoe Affutu.


Regula Tschumi delivered coffin miniatures to several museum shops. Since 2005 she also collects miniatures from Paa Joe, Kudoe Affutu and other artists. Most objects shown on this website belong to her private collection and are available for museum exhibitions.
