Pilgrims holding candles pray at the base of the statue of the Virgin Mary on Santa Barbara hill before sunrise in the mining city of Oruro, Bolivia, Friday, Feb. 1, 2013. The statue, known in Spanish as "Virgen del Socavón," or the Virgin of the Tunnel, is Oruro's patron, venerated in particular by miners and folkloric Carnival dancers. The statue was unveiled on Friday to mark the start of Carnival in Oruro, which coincides with celebrations honoring the Virgin that starts on Saturday, Bolivia's largest religious event.
