Sky Burial-Tibet

At this Tibetan funeral, the deceased’s body is placed on the mountaintop, disassembled, left “exposed to the elements” and eaten by cleaning the animals.

This excarnation practice is common in Tibet, Qinghai, Sichuan, Inner Mongolia, and Mongolia’s Chinese provinces and autonomous regions.

Villagers carry the bodies to the bird burial ground by horse or car, and the owner of the bird funeral performs the ritual of the bodies.

As the bird circles the area, the burial master chops the bird to eat the feast. It is a good sign that the whole body is consumed.

Lip Tobacco-Philippines

In the Philippines, Tingian dresses up the deceased in the best outfits and sits in a chair.

The body stays there for a few weeks, often with a burning cigarette between the lips.

The corpse sits and is buried, with women tying their hands to their feet to prevent “ghosts from roaming.”
