    This is the last scene of the film El becerro pintado, by David Pantaleon. The man who painted the calf in gold, now washes the paint off. This golden calf was saved from slaughter, and thereby shows our hypocrisy: When the calf was golden, we wanted him at the center of the altar. Now, after the golden paint has been washed off, the calf is no longer important and can go back to the stall.

    One after the other people approach a stone or other holy object. They raise their hand thrilling and touch the surface gently.  Many of them kiss it to and dry the tears.  Harun Faruki filmed pilgrims visiting holy objects in different places. Mostly they were filmed from the back in a way that you don't really see their faces. Maybe it is enough to see the silhouette of the head and the hand to understand this touching moment.
