Research for this book has, naturally, prompted me to research various burial and funeral traditions, as well as how different cultures view death, etc. Story-writing aside, it's an interesting bit of research, and it's churned up some fascinating ideas for me (as a writer) to ponder.
So I guess it stands to reason that the below photo really grabbed me when I found it this past week. It went straight to the top of the VisDare queue, and here it is --- for your flash fiction writing pleasure.
What can you make of this particular scene? Is it necessarily horrific? Symbolic? A moment of unexpected hope?
