Via Crucis, Teotitlan, MexicoAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Mexico, Oaxaca, Teotitlan del Valle, April 18, 2011. On a moody Monday in southern Mexico, the Zapotec townspeople of Oaxaca's Teotitlan del Valle reenact all fourteen Stations of the Cross through this mountain community's winding cobblestone streets. From the first station, where Jesus is condemned to die, to the last, where he is laid in his tomb, somber processions accompanied by flowers, singers and a brass band stop at each refuge, adorned with "tapetes" created by master carpet weavers and blessed with food and drink for all.
