Clearing out the photo files

I was going to follow up yesterday’s post about mortuaries with some leftover information on the subject of cremation. On further reflection, however, it seemed like that wouldn’t be such a great topic for a Saturday.

I still wanted to share this one photo that I found. It shows the crematorium worker whose job it is to operate the furnace. Notice how concerned he is about the quality of his work.

Another picture I found while researching corpse disposal methods used by Native American tribes of the far north. This shows the lamalor armor made from hardened leather, wood and bones worn in battle by Siberians and Eskimos. It looks more to me like an ancient attempt at flight, what with the wing structures on the back. See what you think.
