Whenever there was a funeral In the small village in Lebanon, where we summered , there were these three women who were hired to walk behind the coffin and infant of the deceased family, who wailed and cried out loud. I guess to add some atmosphere to the ritual. These same women were also hired at weddings. Watercolor on paper.
