INDONESIA, Sumba Island – An hour east of Bali by plane lies a place filled with animistic Old World Charm. Sumba Island is one of the few remaining places on the planet still practicing the tradition of megalithic burial.

This involves the creation of towering megaliths to inter prominent individuals upon their passing. Families adhering to the old beliefs may also choose to erect such impressive structures in their own backyards, keeping ancestral memories and connections alive.
