Abstract

Spontaneous shrines are temporary memorials that people construct, at their own motivation, to mark the sites of untimely deaths. They have a variety of forms such as floral tributes, crosses, photographs and artworks, and can be associated with particular individuals or a number of deceased individuals. These shrines are not part of an official directive, but gain widespread attention which ensure that death does not pass unnoticed.
