NICARAGUA: The Chained Ones Photo Gallery:
In these April 18, 2014 photos, youths in a masks poses for pictures during a break while participating in “Los Encadenados”, or The Chained Ones procession on Good Friday during Holy Week in Masatepe, Nicaragua. Dressing up in colourful masks and costumes, residents participate by attaching long chains to people portraying Judas and drag them around, sometimes symbolically kicking and beating them, in punishment for betraying Jesus Christ.
It’s fun for all the family. Bring the kids.
