It provided lesson plans, professional development, and innovative web resources to support teachers, build community, and improve K-12 education in North Carolina. Learn NC is no longer supported by the School of Education – this is a historical archive of their website.

Bull figure carried in procession to cremation grounds by over one hundred men

Size: 1024×686

A black bull figure with gold trim is carried in procession to the cremation grounds by over one hundred men.

The finely decorated bull figure, in which the corpse of the Brahman is to be burned, stands on a golden platform. The entire float is supported by men with white headbands who support a gridwork of bamboo poles on their shoulders.
