“The Encounter” relives the moment in which Jesus saw his mother in the way to the crucifixion. La Verónica saw Jesus carrying the cross and wiped the blood from his face. Later she met John to announce her encounter with Jesus and both went in search of Mary with the news. Finally Mary realized the Encounter between her and son. In the procession this story is played out with the images representing the characters inclining towards each other to “talk”.
After witnessing many of the Alfombras being destroyed by rain, the procession got under way. Photos –
