  • Description

    Artists from the Valley de la Orotava, Canary Islands, prepare in Madrid's Paseo del Prado one of the 'sand carpets' which in their native province are made together with flower carpets for Corpus Christi celebrations.

    Sands of ten different colours - taken from the Canada del Teide, El Taco and other fertile districts of the Orotava - were brought to Madrid to form the carpet - a picture made of sand artistically laid out on the ground. In the middle of the pictures is a Calvary scene, and as the sides, allegories of the Holy Eucharist and the Ave Maria.
