Miniature Good Friday procession

This was yet another huge surprise for me 5 years ago, when on Good Friday morning, I was invited to visit this incredible piece of artwork done by one man - a complete Good Friday procession in miniature, spread out throughout an entire room, actually at the President’s residence. I was told that this man had been working on this project for a decade but never exhibited any of his statuettes, until the President of Malta himself showed interest and invited him to showcase this masterpiece during Holy Week at the Palace itself.
This exhibit shows the entire procession, complete with marching bands, altar-servers, Biblical characters and the complete set of statues. Each statuette is approximately 3 to 4 inches in height, but meticulously crafted, painted and displayed.
