Nicholson wants Indian burial

Jack Nicholson plans sky burialJack Nicholson is considering being picked to death by vultures when he dies.

The 72-year-old actor has become fascinated with the traditional sky burials carried out by some Native Americans which involve the deceased's body being hung from a tree or wooden scaffold and being left for scavengers.

He told German TV channel Tele 5: "I've had several ideas. Once I thought it would be nice to be buried under a large statue that is at least 10 meters high. Then I liked the nature of the Indians who haul their bodies up into the trees so that they are eaten by the birds."
