An ethnic Tibetan woman from Kham area wearing traditional amber headwear looks at fake human skulls placed inside a room at the site for sky burials near the Larung valley located some 3700 to 4000 metres above the sea level in Sertar county, Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan province, China October 31, 2015. In early afternoons, on a hill near famous Larung Wuming Buddhist Institute relatives and onlookers gather for sky burials in which bodies of deceased people are offered to vultures to prey upon it. Such burials are practiced by some Tibetans and Mongolian in China as an extreme type of Buddhist's "self-sacrifice almsgiving". It is believed that feeding vultures with decomposed corpse of relatives on top of a mountain is a respectful to pay tribute to their passed-away beloved ones. Picture taken October 31, 2015.

Victor, an artisan shows a polished a piece of amber next to a raw piece of the semi precious stone in his workshop in the southern state of Chiapas January 22, 2003. Amber miners earn 40-100 pesos (about 4-10 US Dollars) a week to extract the fossilized tree sap, which then fetches much higher prices once it has been cut and polished by local artisans.
