Pampanga Scenes

My grandmother passed away recently, and I made these sketches while at her wake.  I’m curious to know if any other cultures have the habit of sending flower arrangements of this sort to wakes, funerals, and store openings.  And what are its roots?  Is it an Asian thing, a Christian thing, or a tropical thing?  I wonder many things.  Below is  a log used to grow orchids on, which I thought would be nice to draw for its textures.
