The Last Supper. Easter Week 2014.

Yesterday was Good Friday in the religious Holy Week. The most famous Holy Week procession in Murcia is this procession: commonly known as the Salzillo's procession. It is really a movement museum of sculptures from the XVIII century when the great artist Francisco Salzillo developed that sculptures (that you can visit during all year round at Salzillo Museum). He showed movement, sorrow, suffering, with great realism.
I don't know if I had commented that Murcia Holy Week was declared of International Touristic Interest.
Images: two from The Last Supper. Last one, detail from The Flagellation.

Un tiempo magnifico para poder disfrutar de la semana santa y sus vistosas procesiones.

The sculptures are fascinating and strange, from the point of view of my background, mind you.

If memory serves, that's the ceremonial garb of the priests.
