Family members hold up a mummified relative before giving it new clothes in a ritual in the Toraja district of Indonesia’s South Sulawesi Province. The ritual, called Ma’nene, involves changing the clothes of mummified ancestors every three years. Locals believe dead family members are still with them, even if they died hundreds of years ago.
