Midweek Blues: The Last Supper

@ mirandablue
As part of the Holy Week tradition, carriages were paraded around town in the late afternoon of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday (April 21st and 22nd) to commemorate and enact the Passion of Jesus.  This carriage was carrying carved images of Jesus and his apostles depicting The Last Supper.  This was part of the procession of the Roman Catholics on Good Friday at my mother's hometown of Valladolid in Negros Occidental.
