Playing Game During Cremation. Bongkasa, Indonesia
Photographer: Anders Ryman, 1993
In the Balinese village of Bongkasa, male villagers
taking part in a cremation ceremony gamble under the
shade of a tree while they wait for the corpse to burn
completely. Cremation, the most important of the many
life-cycle ceremonies of the Balinese, releases the soul
so that it can be reborn on earth again.
