✯ Baby tree in Toraja (again in Indonesia) If a Torajan baby dies before its first teeth show the mother will make a hole in a tree and lay it to rest inside. From one account it is believed the babies soul will travel up the tree and float away in the wind, another says that as the tree heals the hole the babies soul is absorbed. ✯
