South Sulawesi province, Indonesia - an exhumed pair of mummies are given a new set of clothes.
Referred to as Ma'nene, the ceremony is meant to pay respects to dead ancestors and honor the bonds that exist between family members, both living and dead. Indeed, many locals believe spirits of deceased ancestors are still with them. Occurring every three years, mummies are cleaned and given new clothes before being laid back in their graves.
Here, the first mummy (Piter Sampe Sambara) is around 80 years old while second (Martha Bu'ta') is some 40 years old though, apparently, some such mummies are well over 100 years.
