Fur Covered Coffin in Puriscal

fur covered coffin
Every time we go into town we drive by the funeral parlor. I always look in the window at the coffin selection, mainly to see the fur covered one. Yesterday I finally got a picture of this Costa Rican curiosity. This one is a light neutral color but I have seen ones that are grey and once one that was black and white patterned like a cow hide. I'm not sure of the significance of the fur covered coffin but they are always on display which leads me to believe they are popular.
