Bolivian Aymara indian women dance as they take part in the "El Senor del Gran Poder" (Feast of the Great Power of Jesus) festival in La Paz, Bolivia May 21, 2005. The feast, which is one of the most important and expressive manifestations of La Paz?s cultural identity, had its origins in the arrival in the Ch'ijini area of a canvas showing a three-faced figure. The image was reinterpreted according to the Aymara tradition to mean that one asked the face on the right for good things, the left for negative things, while one prayed to the center face. The Catholic Church had the canvas repainted in 1930, leaving only the face in the centre, which became known as Jesus of the Great Power.
