Just Another Demo


(‘Scuse wobbly video, tight elbows situation)

Slightly terrifying parades in Almunecar for Semana Santa – holy week.  There were three separate parades on the good friday, each involving a cofradia (coalition/guild/brotherhood) of churches.  I need a major deconstruction of these from someone in the know, it’s all full of what I hope is just Catholic symbolism.

Pics from the slightly less scary daytime parade

See next post for the evening parade.

    We like the women in black with the black mantillas, but did you see the all women one, with gold mantillas?!

  2. Pam I Says:

    There was one woman in gold with what I took to be the Important People at the head of the parade (see above). No all-gold ones. All the blocs are gendered – women walk along looking sombre, and blokes hump heavy weights. But cant tell who’s who under those hoods – which I presume is their origin -.the removal of individual personality? Jung’s Ur-mind?
