Bali: The Placenta Grave

("setra ari ari") of

Bayung Gede (Bali Aga)

by Hans & Fifi

Remarkable in the Bali Aga village of Bayung Gede is the way how to keep the placenta. Normal tradition on Bali is to bury it in the homeground of the parents of the father. It is considered as one of the so called "four brothers". Here in Bayung Gede this brother is kept in a coconut shell hanging on a tree in a graveyard of placenta (setra ari ari). In 2009 we are going to take a look.
Great was the friendliness and hospitality of the local people.
Thanks for that.
