The image of El Señor de la Columna is the focal point of the midday procession in San Miguel de Allende. Wearing purple velvet, Christ is tied to a pillar, his back covered with blood. These processions are part of the annual Good Friday observances in the 400-year-old Mexican town. Although this photo was taken in the 1960s, the rituals are much the same today.
