Odd Fellows coffin painting

The Odd Fellows use a coffin in initiation ceremonies because it represents the end. The initiate is told to help others until death. The fraternal organization was founded in England in the 1700s and was so named "because it was odd to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need and of pursuing projects for the benefit of all mankind," according to the official website.
