Madonna II: Sagrado Corazón

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by M. Laura Martinez

Re-enactors in Quito, Ecuador, dress up like the virgins depicted in the murals of the historic Iglesia de San Francisco. They stand on the benches, silently like living statues. It is one of the most beautiful and mesmerizing spectacles I have seen in my life. The Virgin of the Sagrado Corazón captured my heart.

Location: Iglesia de San Francisco, Quito, Ecuador
