Burial of the Sardine

Sardine in it's funeral procession on the way to its cremation

Fake clergy

Assorted mourners

Ash Wednesday's Burial of the Sardine at Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is meant to herald the end of Carnival, only it doesn't. It isn't a burial, it's a cremation; the clergy aren't real clergy, the wailing widow's aren't real women, even the chicharro (sardine) turned out to be an Atlantic horse mackerel
