Artist Ite, buried in an amazing casket in the shape of a shoe.

The children of a celebrated artiste in Akwa Ibom state, Nigeria known as Artist Ite, has buried their father in an amazing casket in the shape of a shoe.

As strange as it may seem, it would not be the first time someone has opted for a far from ordinary casket, as there has been reports of a burial of a fisherman who was buried in a casket shaped like a fish.

According to a facebook user, Emmanuel Emmanuel Udoh, who was reportedly at the burial:

"Today I was at the Burial ceremony of one of the greatest artists to come out of the south south to pay my last respect. Indeed he left a big shoe to be filled. A great artist and sculpture.

"This masterpiece casket was done by 2 of his kids who took after him. Both great graduates of Fine Arts!"

The casket was a giant gold shoe, which seems which seems to open at the middle forming a casket but also looks to be very heavy.

Artiste Ite was given a burial befitting his status as a creative mind.
