China's first encoffiners rise in E, born after 1990s

Two professional encoffiners,a sub-class of undertakers, practice tidying a deceased body at an encoffination center in Jiaxing city, East China's Zhejiang province, April 24, 2012. The two along with other seven colleagues have become China's first professional encoffiners comprised of three men and six women, all of whom were born after 1990. Their job is to prepare the body of a deceased person and place it in a coffin in a ceremonial or ritualistic manner. However, the profession has not yet been accepted by all people and the encoffiners are finding it hard to earn a living. [Photo/CFP]
