Masks.

aaaaas I may have mentioned 8 times, I went to Marinduque for the Moriones Festival.

Marinduque is known for this festival and annually thousands of people flock to the island for Holy Week. The main attraction are the hundreds of men and women who dress as Moriones, or Roman soldiers to depict the crucifixion story.

I’ll explain more of that…some other time. Later.

Apparently they spend all year creating their hand crafted masks and even hide them from their families to keep their secret identity hidden.

TONS of people were standing around waiting for the parade/reenactment of the crucifixion.

even the lil’ guys dressed up.

AND THEN. Jesus and his band of criminals started walking through the streets. Naturally the soldiers started kicking and whipping them. What else is a Roman soldier to do?
