Families in Toraja in South Sulawesi dig up the bodies of their dead relatives before washing, grooming and dressing them in fancy new clothes.
Even dead children are exhumed - two of these photos show the skeleton of a baby wrapped in a print dress with a doll laid next to it.
Damaged coffins are fixed or replaced, and the mummies are then walked around the village by following a path of straight lines.
The ritual is called MaiNene, or The Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses, and takes place every August.
