Toraja dumpsite?

In Tana Toraja the alive live with the dead and life is considered to be only a preparation to death. Certainly a wise observation. Anyway by visiting graves many earthy items can be spotted ranging from plastic bags to plastic water bottles. Offerings for the dead or transfering garbage to them?
Similar ancestor cults exist throughout South-East Asia, in particular among the Strait Chinese.

Tana Toraja, South Sulawesi, May 2009.
