Holy Week Alfombra Detail: Part 2

My post Holy Week Alfombra Detail: Part 1 was just a taster of the thousands of alfombras created during Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Antigua, Guatemala. As so many intricate details grabbed my attention, I had to break them down into separate posts.

  4. Oh my! I’ve seen Nicole’s photos of alfombras, and I was amazed! But only after taking a look at your last two posts when I realized that I merely scratched the surface! Those alfombras have completely blown me away! Truly beautiful and amazing!

    • Thanks Bama, they truly are works of art and need to be seen to be believed! I´d recommend anyone to experience one Semana Santa here in Antigua! It´s incredible as there is so much going on but my favorite part are the alfombras. Check out my other posts on Semana Santa if you haven´t already although I will be posting more new ones.

  5. Beautiful carpets, too bad they get destroyed afterwards!

    • I know but maybe that’s part of their beauty. They’re there for just an instant to be replaced by another creation later and no-one seems to be sad about it!
