DESCRIPTION/STATEMENT: In Bali I attended a funeral cremation ritual. When someone dies their body is buried until enough gifts and offerings are created for a proper ceremony. Sometimes it takes years. Then the bones are dug up, washed and wrapped before being cremated in elaborately carved and painted animal shaped coffins.
