HONORING THE DEAD: Family members held up the mummified remains of man before giving it new clothes in a ritual in the Toraja district of Indonesia's South Sulawesi province Thursday. The ritual, called Ma`nene, involves changing the clothes of mummified ancestors every three years to honor the deceased. Locals believe dead family members are still with them, even if they died hundreds of years ago, a family spokesman said.
