Epitaphs

In the main temple is the Holy Epitaph, which is usually framed on the north wall.

It is the precious gold-embroidered fabric, which represents the divine deposition and is placed on the pilgrimage of Great Friday in the sacred wooden canopy which is called also Epitaph.

The Epitaph is a dome that has handles for transport and that houses the bank with the gold-embroidered fabric (Epitaph). This canopy represents the Tomb of Christ and is made either of aluminium with elaborate designs or is handmade carved wooden construction. From the afternoon of the previous day it is decorated with flowers by the women faithful of each parish. The Epitaph in the procession is sprinkled with flower petals and myrrh and is marked as a sign of respect.
