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.

A man uses a machete to kill a buffalo during a Rambu Solo ceremony in Tana Toraja in Indonesia's South Sulawesi province January 3, 2012. Rambu Solo is a traditional death ritual practised by Tana Toraja residents. When a person dies, animals such as pigs, chickens and buffaloes are sacrificed as the locals believe the animals carry the soul of the deceased into heaven. The number and type of animal killed reflects the social status of the dead person. After the animals are killed, a feast is thrown and the body of the deceased carried up a hill into a resting house. The ceremony on Tuesday was for Agnes Datu Sarungallo, who died in August 2011. Her family killed 200 buffaloes and 500 other animals to feed to guests. REUTERS/Yusuf Ahmad (INDONESIA - Tags: SOCIETY TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)
