Sagada, Hanging Coffins, Philippines

This card shows a traditional burial place with hanging coffins in Echo Valley near Sagada in the Mountain Province, Philippines. The tribe that buried its dead that way was never conquered and thus was able to maintain their culture throughout time. They still keep some of their old traditions till today.
This unusual card was sent by Romina Mislang for the WiP ABC Letter S swap.
