10-Hour Life Cycle of a Semana Santa Alfombra (Holy Week Carpet)

During the Holy Week alfombras (carpets) are created on the streets of the procession routes.
It is a long-standing tradition and the variety and artistic beauty must be seen to be truly appreciated.

This series by photographer Katrin Neuhaus shows, from beginning to end,
the approximately 10-hour life cycle of one of these creations of devotion.
