Moving the Coffin Down the Stairs
Cremation of the Ubud Bali Royal Family Member Cokorda Putra Widura. The coffin containing the purified body descends the stairs in the arms of the palace member. It will be carried to the waiting sarcophagus bull that has arrived before the cremation tower. Ubud, Bali – May 7, 2016
A strong curiosity factor here. I had to pull back to review the previous images in the cremation series to gain my context. All of this gives us a fascinating glimpse into something very, very unfamiliar and fascinating.
Thank you. I too found this event fascinating. The dramatic ceremony is quite something. I was told that the person that dies was important in the royal family but not one of the kings, queens or sons of the king. Had it been the tower and everything else would have been far more elaborate. Hard to believe. There are four more images in this series.
Thanks again for your comments and interest.
