Not sure if I already posted this but...

Octavio Paz in Labyinth of Solitude states that quite often the native builders of many early churches
would paint the native gods in the wet plaster, only to have the clerics have them repaint what they had on offer.
So the belief and culture is right under the surface quite literally.

Great report Juanito. More pics of locals please.

Best Regards,
