Photo of the Week: Relaxing Roman Replicas

This week we’re spotlighting a picture from user Journeylism who snapped this candid moment between two surprisingly nonchalant Roman soldiers in the Buenos Aires religious theme park, Tierra Santa. Journeylism had this to say about how he stumbled upon these strange simulacra:

“We always look for weird places when traveling and looking out of our airplane’s window while landing on Buenos Aires’ domestic airport we saw Jesus and a couple of his companions hanging out in what looked like a theme park. We couldn’t resist looking into it once we had our feet on the ground, and a day or so later we walked with hundreds of school kids amongst Bible stories in a somewhat outdated decor.”
