Toraja woman preparing a funerary rite. These ceremonies are very important for Toraja. Between the date of the death and the funeral, it can go by years sometimes (here, two years), because it is necessary that the family can pay the ceremony, and that all the members of the line are present. Meanwhile, the late one will have remained in its residence where it will have been the object of ceaseless care of its close relations (it is said that deaths are sick).
