Photographer's Note

While in Bali we watched a cremation ceremony in a village near Ubud. While we thought that it might have been a tourist affair, in fact it was the funeral ceremony for two village chiefs, and while there were several tourists in attendance, it was a real affair. The peole's importance can be assesed by the use of the bull sculpture to cover the coffin, as the bull is considered a poweful animal.

*** As pointed out by David, there is a smudge on the upper part of the mans turban. I have posted the original as a workshop to show why I cloned it out.
