After the midday Passion Play and an afternoon of silence, religious images are carried through the town, with the body of the crucified Jesus in a glass coffin on a funeral bier. Crowds of silent mourners, dressed in black, accompany the statues with measured drumbeats marking the compass. These processions are part of the annual Good Friday observances in the Mexico town of San Miguel de Allende.
