Funerary tower
The last farewell of a loved one, full of colours, music and smiles.
 

A colourful celebration of death

For many people, the loss of a loved one is a period full of sadness, introspection and solemnity.

On the island of Bali, this natural event is the motive of an elaborated ceremony that is more about celebration than mourning.

There are no tears, only smiles, there's no silence but loud and energetic music. Families get together for the last farewell to their relative, telling us that life is too short to be sad. Life is to be celebrated, as much as death.

Shooting location: Town of Ubud, Island of Bali, Indonesia.
