Indian Village Funeral Car

As I wrote in my post on funeral processions, you don't need a Cadillac or Lincoln Hearse for a proper funeral procession. What is important is that the vehicle is special and chosen for a reason. This vehicle being prepared to transport a beloved South Indian Village woman to her cremation certainly qualifies.

After the wood frame is built and attached to the car, bamboo sticks covered with flowers are bent and inserted into the frame.

Finally, the vehicle is complete and ready to transport this woman ceremoniously to the place of her cremation- Beautiful!
