Capillas of Zegache part IV

A mogote is an isolated, steep-sided hill. Zegache means "Seven mogotes" in the Zapotec language. A mogote is represented through a four-sided cone and it is a iconic shape in Zegache - used as ornamental feature on top of walls and as in this case in a capilla.

We decided to take one of the mototaxis in Zegache and document most of the shrines that are scattered around the pueblo. Public media research (see separate blog posts "Capillas of Zegache").
