Los cabezudos / Las fiestas de Santa Tecla / 2009

I took this panorama in 2009 one of large panorama tours of the festival ¨Las fiestas de Santa Tecla¨that take place in Tarragona, Cataluna, Spain.

cabezudos are smaller figures, they are more then 300 years old, very well preserved. usually to the human scale, that feature an oversized, carton-pierre head. The heads are worn with a matching costume. The person dressed as cabezudo will use one hand to hold his head, while the other hand carries a whip or pig bladder, used to frighten children or young women. Seeing through the “mouth” of the head, he will chase after these people, though he might pause to calm a frightened child.

As with the giants, the cabezudos typically represent archetypes of their town.
