Living Dead! Corpse of Ghana Food Vendor Made to Pound Yam while Lying in State

Corpse of the food vendour pounding yam

This happened in live Ghana and the picture has gone viral in the social media. A very popular food vendour that died recently was made to prepare her last meal even as a dead person. To give her the last respect in her profession, her corpse was positioned with various supports to show her corpse pounding yam. So instead of seeing her lying in state in a coffin, the corpse is actually pounding yam in front of the coffin.

What do you think about this concept? Do you think it could become fashionable in burials across the wold?
