The benediction of San Francisco Solano in Humahuaca (Argentina)

In the village of Humahuaca, in Northern Argentina, every day at precisely 12-noon, on the city-hall bell-tower, heavy copper doors slowly open and a life-size animated wooden, dramatic-looking statue of San Francisco Solano appears for about two minutes and gives his benediction to the silent crowd amassed on the village plaza.­
