The Automatic Coffin

You can see this coffin in Nicanor Parra's exhibit. The translation of the inscription on the sign is: "In case of resurrection, turn the coffin's lid counterclockwise. This is an automatic coffin"
Most works in this exhibit are ironic and funny. It's worth a visit...

Good shot, I also have imagined how terrible must be to resurrect and find a closed coffin.
