2011 April - Semana Santa - Easter

A beautiful sawdust carpet in a cathedral in Antigua...
these carpets are a form of sacrifice.

Making a complex design on a carpet in the streets of Antigua...

A template used for the colored sawdust...

The color purple is the the color of Easter in Guatemala..
it signifies the royal blood of Christ... purple flags drape all
the buildings in Antigua.

A large antique platform carried by Easter pilgrims through the streets.

  1. I miss Semana Santa so much! I wish they did that stuff up here! I miss the alfombras and all the parades and such.
