The frescos from the 1600's are now in the process of being restored.
The statue scenes are incredible.
Notice that the sculptor had no idea what a Roman soldier looked like. So he sculpted him as a Spaniard (far right).
As a Protestant I have always appreciated the Mary Statues in Catholic Churches. It is something Protestants just can't match.
Penitante are still active in this area.
I have always been impressed with the passionate nature of The Catholic Church. I ask questions, Like why is Jesus heart so big and on the outside. The answer- Because his heart was so huge with compassion and forgiveness.. Does James always dress in red and green? . Yes.( I knew Mary wore blue.) And why do some Angels have no bodies, just wings and a head? The answer is because they are the highest of the Angels that no longer need a body.
I think I am going to see if I can make a Seraphim with paper mache now. I admire them.
