Interesting → Free Tibet... dismembering the female corpse

This Tibetan nun was hanged in a head-down position till her death by Chinese border security forces.
She was involved in the Tibetan guerilla resistance movement and attempted to flee from persecution in Tibet. Her body was released and was underwent by sky burial after all.

Sky burial or ritual dissection was once a common practice in Tibet. A human corpse is cut into small pieces and placed on a mountaintop, exposing it to the elements and animals - especially to birds of prey. The majority of Tibetans adhere to Buddhism, which teaches reincarnation. There is no need to preserve the body, as it is now an empty vessel. Birds may eat it, or nature may let it decompose. So the function of the sky burial is simply the disposal of the remains. In much of Tibet the ground is too hard and rocky to dig a grave, and with fuel and timber scarce, a sky burial is often more practical than cremation. The work of disassembling of the body may be done by a monk, or, more commonly, by rogyapas ("body-breakers").
