Tomb decoration, Cuenca, Ecuador, 2011

Intense religious expression is characteristic of not only Ecuador, but also all of South America. I passed by many stores in Cuenca selling tomb decorations this figure of Christ, accompanied by a bouquet of roses, was hanging on the front door of one of them. The robed figure holds a blossom in one hand, and invites the public into the store with the other. The primary colors of red and yellow frame the figure, making it seem to levitate. And advertisements pasted on the wall in the background add a practical, yet incongruous, touch.
