The Effigy of Jesus


The Effigy of Jesus

We went to Cartago to watch the Catholic processional on Good Friday. The Cartago presentation is unique in Costa Rica because they use live actors for most of the characters they depict. They use effigies of Jesus, the two thieves and the Virgin Mary only. They use one effigy for when Jesus carries the cross and a different one when he’s crucified between the two thieves. It’s quite elaborate. And the bishop gave a good salvation message at the scene of the crucifixion.
