The Strangest Real-Life Graves in the World
In the Tana Toraja land on an island in Indonesia the youngest deaths in the local community are placed in a special burial tree. The "baby trees" are the final resting places for infants. If the child dies before it has started teething, the mother will wrap a baby in a cloth and make a hole in the tree. The baby is placed in the tree, and then sealed off. As the tree heals it's believed that the baby is absorbed by the tree. It's actually quite beautiful.
