TO CREMATE A KING

18 Feb

Cambodia’s King-Father, Norodom Sihanouk, was cremated in a lavish ceremony earlier this month. The photos below are from the Jan. 26th rehearsal, the Feb. 1st procession, a trip to the palace on Feb. 3rd, and the Feb. 4th cremation.

You can read a description of the cremation in the Southeast Asia Globe. My piece on the end of monarchical power in Cambodia can be found in the Toronto Star.
