The ngaben, or cremation, is a rather festive event.  The Balinese believe in reincarnation and practice ancestral worship so it's very important, for both the dead and the living, that the spirit of the dead is celebrated as it leaves the physical world.

Kuluk Gallery in Ubud is one of the places I send all visitors to bali to find a great selection of arts and antiques from Indonesia. Reliable and well-priced, the owner (and a friend) Donna Lum is very knowledgeable about her inventory and you can trust what she says.
