The Nazarene joins the image of San José and El Niño de Sazillo, donated by the Parish of Santiago Apóstol de Lorquí last May, which since then is also exhibited in the Museum and will remain there until 10 from December.

"In the town of Lorquí we are deeply fortunate to have unique pieces of the imagery of the master sculptor from Murcia, including our municipality in the so-called 'Cities of Salizllo.' A sculptural ensemble, declared BIC in 2011, which integrates the images of Saint Joseph and the Child, the Sorrowful Virgin and Our Father Jesus Nazareno Works of art that are giving our municipality and our Holy Week the relevance and regional promotion that they deserve and that little by little are receiving the proper recognition of their great value ", as highlighted by the mayor of the municipality, Joaquín Hernández, during the presentation of the work at the Museum on November 7.

"For this reason, in Lorquí we are very proud and grateful to admire and contemplate processioning through the streets and squares of the city of Murcia to the Nazareno de Salzillo, as well as being able to show it to the rest of the world in the Magna Procesión, that this transcends the important religious value it has to become also an event of cultural and tourist interest.It is for us and for me personally a unique moment that will remain in our memory forever, "added Hernandez.

For his part, the representative of the Brotherhood of Jesus Nazareno de Lorquí, Emilio Marco, has manifested the unusual and extraordinary that the Nazarene is exposed in the center of the Church of Jesus with the best production of Salzillo.

"It is a pride for all the people and we can only thank the Brotherhood of Jesus of Murcia his wonderful welcome."
