The Wider Image: Indonesians celebrate the dead in ancient ritual 
In an ancient Torajan ritual known as "Ma'nene" clans visit the tombs of deceased family members, clean their remains and replenish the coffins with personal belongings. The people of Tana Toraja, or "the land of Toraja", are mostly Christian, but adhere to old traditions whose roots trace back to animistic beliefs. This is common in Indonesia, a predominantly Muslim country of 250 million people that is also home to minority groups which espouse Hinduism, Buddhism, and traditional beliefs. Unlike some other cultures, death is barely a parting for those in Toraja. The deceased are mummified and housed in ornate, colourful coffins and spend several months or even years in their own homes before receiving a funeral and burial. Relatives talk to the deceased, offer them food and drink, and involve them in family gatherings, as if they are still alive. Once sufficient family members can attend and money is available to pay for sacrificial buffaloes and pigs, a funeral ceremony, known as 'Rambu Solo', is held, with the whole village usually invited to a feast celebrating communal ties.

Women take a "selfie" with musicians and healers of band "Mazaher Zar" after the band performed a traditional exorcism ritual in Cairo late November 12, 2014. Egyptians dance the "Zar", a traditional dance of frenzied movements, to captivating music that has its roots in an exorcism ritual. It has been part of Egyptian culture since ancient times to dance to drive away evil spirits and negative energy. The "Zar" religious ceremony, which uses drumming and dancing to cure an illness thought to be caused by a demon, is most prominent in southern Egypt and is practiced further south into the Sudan, though it may be performed anywhere in Egypt.

A mother bows before religious idols that Shaman Choi Kuing-hun believes in as he looks on at his house in Seongnam, south of Seoul, August 16, 2013. Anxious parents have long sought hints from fortune-tellers about how well their children will do in school. The shamans, men and women who perform traditional religious rites, say parents asking about their children's academic and career prospects - at 50,000 to 100,000 won ($45 to $90) an hour - usually take the advice they get very seriously.
