A crucifixion scene in dyed sawdust, taken from a carpet (alfombra) on Good Friday (Viernes Santo).

These carpets are made and designed by family and community members and live a short life. Once the procession comes by, they are walked on…and gone forever.

Taken during Holy Week (Semana Santa) festivities in Antigua, Guatemala.
