Abstract: The Good Friday procession of Vittoriosa calls for the attention of the students of Maltese Church History and of those persons keen in gathering information on the social customs of the Maltese people. The traditional eight statues carried in procession possess a peculiarity of their own. They are clad in rich vestments of coloured velvet and silk, all embroidered in gold thread. This renders them so realistic in appearance that they are an inspiring attraction to the religious fantasy of the pious people reciting prayers in front of them.
