Confraternity El Rollo
With the purpose of confraternity could take part in all the processions of Jumilla’s Easter , without having repeating any Bible passage, it is agreed on general assembly the creation of a new paso, concretely the Elevación de Cristo a la Cruz.
In April 2005, Mr. President of the Confraternity, Pedro Francisco Navarro Mínguez, signs the contract with the sculptor for the realisation of the new sculptoric group, which would see the light for the first time in 2008, in the Good Friday’s morning in the Calvary’s Procession.
Canonically erected in the San Juan Bautista’s Church.
The sculptoric group is formed by four carving images, three executioners and the figure of Christ.
The paso represents the historical moment when Christ’s body, once nailed by the arms to the patibulum, is erected to the stipes by two executioners by means of a system of pulleys. Meanwhile the third executioner waits at Lord’s feet for proceeding to nail the feet to the stipes or palus.
Sculptoric group realised by the notable sculptor from Los Ramos (Murcia), Mr José Antonio Hernández Navarro, being this one the third work that realises for Confraternity El Rollo.
