Quick Snap: Pieta

Most commonly found in sculptures, the Pieta is a subject in Christian art that depicts the dead body of Jesus being cradled by the Virgin Mary.

The Pieta caroza passes by the Sts. Peter and Paul Parish Church amidst a multitude of devotees in Bantayan Island, Cebu, the Philippines. This caroza is only one of many that participate in the annual solemn procession to celebrate the Semana Santa (Holy Week).
