Ma'nene in Toraja
Ludia Pindan (60) cries beside the body of her husband, Markus Tombang, who died in 2016 at age 64. They were married for over 43 years.
Ma'nene is a tradition that takes place in August after harvest where the bodies of the dead loved ones are exhumed to be cleaned, groomed and dressed. For most, it's a bittersweet moment, a chance to reunite and physically see and touch and reconnect with loved ones who had passed on.
