Held up by (living) family members, the mummified remains of a man and a woman are given their three-yearly sprucing, which includes new threads in a ritual in Indonesia.

Called Ma'nene, the ceremony, which was pictured in the Sulawesi Province, celebrates the deceased and the bond that exists between family members - both alive and dead.
