Beautiful Works Of Art From Central America (7/9)

Alfombras de Aserrín are impressive works of art that resemble carpets made of different colored sawdust. They are created by devout Catholics around the country but mainly in Comayagua, Santa Bárbara, and Copán. The carpets, which are usually laid out on main streets of the cities mentioned above, show images of important passages from the Bible, as well as passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The carpets are put together and displayed throughout Holy Week.
