15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

Christian believers got control of the rope that is used to pull the cart where the Replica of Jesus, the Black Nazarene is loaded. The smooth flow of the procession of the Black Nazarene depends on the unity and coherent movement of those who got the rope. Every 9th of January, during a town fiesta, Christian devotees participate in a procession of the Image that almost always takes a day and participated by hundreds of thousands of Christians.
