gachuz See my previous post;
Many of the images in the city of Morelia were sculpted by indigenous neophytes. Colonialism proved fatal and cataclysmic to natives of Mesoamerica and ironically, many identified with the passion and death of Jesus. To indigenous artists representations of the suffering Christ were indeed, close to their own experience.

gachuz My grandma used to say that graphic representations of the suffering of Christ were not meant to evoke the obvious: Guilt, pity, or horror. They are in fact images that connect the suffering of Christ to that of the world. Surely, Christians believe that Christ was risen and ascended to heaven. Nevertheless, the world still suffering, and the crucifixes remind that we have to look at the suffering of the world and ask ourselves, what are we doing to take Christ from the cross? Are we not horrified enough to heal and serve those who are still crucified? 7d
