In the Philippine province of Quezon there are still a number of men who wear elaborate costumes while preforming their act of self flagellation. This unique costume with its colorful headdress called the “tukarol” and its skirt called the “saya” is the last of it’s kind in the Philippine Islands. The ritual is preformed during the early hours of Good Friday with preparations taking place at the start of Holy Week.
