Camera Lucida: Enchanted

Sagada Hanging Coffins

These are just some of the hanging coffins that I saw during my visit at Sagada. This is an ancient funeral norm of hanging coffins from mountain cliffs which is still being practiced by some minority groups. The purpose of suspending the casket from the mountain rocks is to bring the deceased closer to heaven. Coffins were made from carved and hollowed-out wood. They are ‘hung’ in place through the use of projecting beams.
