Title

Consecration: Girls removing broken grains from motu poya, 1987

Description

It was obvious that this was an unpopular task and the girls who took part did not share the enthusiasm of the nun who selected them. I was unable to find out what purpose this tedious ritual served. Perhaps the rice was used in preparing the special dessert being made in the kitchen.
