Nicolás de Bussy
The Triumph of the Cross · ‘La Diablesa’ (The She-Devil), 1694
Museo Arqueológico Comarcal, Orihuela, Spain

Processional float (‘paso’) commissioned by the Farmers Guild for the Holy Week. The sculptural group still plays an important role in the Holy Week parades in Orihuela, and is carried through the streets during the procession on Holy Saturday. It is prohibited from entering the churches nor the Cathedral during the procession, as it contains a depiction of the Devil. (+)
