Nazarenos doing public penance procession on Good Friday in Seville. Nazarenos are members of brotherhoods, dressed in a robe, cone shaped hood -to hide his or her identity, and a cape. Often, the nazarenos walk without shoes throughout the city of Seville for 6 -12 hours continuously. This Nazareno has a "solidifed" glove, which was the result of the melting wax of the candle dripping onto the thin white glove in the cold air, and now, the glove can longer be worn to protect his/her right hand for the rest of the procession.

Location: Seville, Andalusia, Spain
