Holy Week Elements: Sawdust Carpets

Semana Santa Elements: Sawdust carpets

First of all, this is the first time I am using somebody else’s photo in Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo. I want to thank Byron Ortiz for allowing me to use his photos of Semana Santa, so I can better show you what is the big deal about the Holy Week Celebrations in La Antigua Guatemala. I am sure I will use other peoples photographs more often if they can better describe the subject at hand.

This week will run a mini-series with Elements of the Holy Week Celebrations in La Antigua Guatemala and its world-famous Semana Santa.

The making of sawdust carpets (alfombras de aserrí­n) with its vivid colors and eye-catching patterns are among the most prominent elements of the Holy Week celebrations. You can come back all this week to see other samples of carpets made with flowers and fruits and vegetables.
