I went through my photos and came up with this one I took at a cremation in Bali. It was a very large cremation, in the sense that many people were being cremated on the same day. It was very simple – no bulls, or towers. Everything was quite plain and made from bamboo and grasses. The offerings were simple, as well, with no fruit, flowers, chickens, or gold leaf.
It was at Penestanan, above Ubud, and was very picturesque winding its way through the trees. Sad though, knowing that even for this simple cremation, and sharing costs, the families would have had to save up for a long time to fulfil their obligations.
I used my Lamy Safari pen, then added colour with Tombows.
