Silver plated candle holders.
The bountiful flowers on this carozza seem to run counter to the image's dolorous countenance.
This image has got to be the most adorned among all images in the procession. Totally breathtaking. She is surrounded by symbols from the revelation (moon at her feet, stars om her head).
The height of glory. Every ray from the virgin's body is adorned with the head of a cherub.
Flowers made of copper or brass adorn this image's bottom portion.
Detail. Antique glass cover.
As tradition dicates, only the very best vestments for the Lady.
Most antique carozzas in the Philippines are still adorned with beaten silver panels like this.
The canopied carozza of the Confradia founder, Imelda Cojuangco. The canopy is embroidered with the Holy Spirit, a reference to the Virgin's exalted status as Mother of God the moment she said yes to the angel of the Annunciation.
