Toraja Grave Site: Tau-Tau wood carved effigies, Londa cliff burial, Tana Toraja

Toraja people still bury their dead in caves, and for the more affluent they create a wooden effigy at the entrance to stand guard ... well, really, just to hang out, like all Indonesians love to do. These were in a sort of "box seat" wood structure above the main cave entrance, dressed in the deceased clothes, wearing their glasses ... Toraja, Sulawesi
