A little death positive throwback on the eve of the release of “From Here to Eternity”. It was 100% worth the three hour drive with @natalia_jeanette to hear the death queen, @thegooddeath!

Victorian women in mourning. Both photos are approximately from the 1880's. Depending on who had passed away, women were expected to wear this sort of outfit for up to a year. 6th plate tintype and cabinet card from my collection. #victorian #mourning #victorianera #victorianphotography #historyofphotography #photography #tintype #cabinetcard #deathcustoms

Fascinating day visiting Londa and Tampangallo burial caves. Torajans bury their families in caves to prevent animals and grave robbers stealing the valuables they are buried with. The effigies (known as Tau Tau) are said to house their spirits and deter grave robbers with their life like features. Torajans have an incredibly complicated funeral ceremony and death process including tea with the deceased and buffalo sacrifice. I found it especially moving that they look after the bones of their relatives in such a caring and respectful manner even placing them in new graves when necessary to keep the family together. The bones in the photos have fallen from the coffins that have rotted away.

Thrilled to share my first byline at @atlasobscura, where I'm talking about Victorian "tear catchers" and why the myth persists. Huge thank you to @deathandscent, @belfryoddities, @rosesandrueantiques, and @thecemeterygates for their expertise! 🖤 Read it via @atlasobscura and http://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/tearcatchers-victorian-myth-bottle
