Cusco Peru. Women penitents outside the Cathedral in the Plaza de Armas, the
main square during the Corpus Christi festival. The women are wearing hand-spun
clothing with embroidered decoration. This festival is an example of syncretism
because it is a major date in the Catholic religious calender and has been super-imposed
since Spanish times on the mid-winter festival of the ancient Inca religion.
