Good Friday processions

Probably the most impressive aspect of the Holy Week celebrations in Malta are the Good Friday processions held in various parishes in the early evening. Usually these processions start after the 3 PM Good Friday service, and go through the streets of the villages between 5 PM and 9 PM. 
Besides the impressive statues that depict the Passion of Christ, from the Agony in the Garden to the Entombment of Jesus, various characters from the Bible also participate in a biblical drama, as you can see from these photos. Roman soldiers also are well represented. More photos will be shown tomorrow. These photos were taken in the town of Rabat back in 2010.
