Circular Loaves For Maria Santissima

The Maria Santissima or Madonna brotherhood side of the Archi di Pasqua in San Biagio Platani, Sicily is decorated in blue and features artwork illustrating the legends and myths of Sicily and its saints and ancient divinities. Pictured here is the entrance archway that displays the cuddura circular bread (behind the white, glazed bread loaves) representing the Madonna (but also the ancient mother goddess of the grain Demeter).

The Archi di Pasqua or Archi di Pane will be exhibited until June 2.
