is often the custom, at a (Christian) funeral in South Africa, to have a dance around the coffin. Elsewhere on this blog, I put up a dance of jubilation around the coffin of a teenager. This is a dance around the coffin of an elderly person -- more modest, yet a dance of gladness and thankfulness to God. OBSERVATION: One sees closer family members seated on the left (colour co-ordinated), and there are several ministers on the stage. There is a large congregation behind the camera.
