Ħaż-Żebbuġ and Saints

Remember the set of Ħaż-Żebbug door knockers photos I posted some while ago on this website? I hope you enjoyed them. Now I embarked on a different project to catalogue the multitude of religious images that are to be seen all over the town.

Ħaż-Żebbug families love to display pictures or ceramic figures on their façade, especially those that stand out close to their front door. Residents also take great care to preserve the many statues and niches that embellish the streets of the town. For them these are not simply an adornment but truly devotional images to be taken care of with a passion.
.
The mix of past and present pious culture in Ħaż-Żebbug is overwhelming. The sense of conservation of these images augurs well for this historic town to retain and enjoy its particular identity.
