The particularity of this capipote is this curious studded leather covering.

These Virgins were used during processions, or in churches, chapels, oratories. They could also illustrate passages from the Bible for the often illiterate faithful and make the Holy Scriptures more understandable. They were dressed in a more or less luxurious way depending on the city, the village or the individual who owned them.
