A statue of "Saint Death" is seen in Mexico City March 7, 2012.

Followers leave offerings of tequila, rum, beer, cigarettes, cash, flowers and candy at altars adorned with rosaries and candles. The Catholic Church frowns on the cult, whose origins may trace back to Aztec and Mayan death-gods or to ancient European traditions, but many devotees call themselves Catholics.

A BRAZILIAN SLAVE LABORER CUTS DOWN FOREST IN AMAZON BASIN.
Brazilian slave laborer, Francisco Borges de Souza, uses a scythe in
his gnarled hands to cut down forest on the Bom Jesus farm in the
Amazon basin, some 1,600 kilometers north of Brasilia, where he has
been illegally exploited for the past six months along with 21 other
workers, September 22, 2003. As teams of government inspectors and
federal police step up their quest to free an estimated 25,000 slave
laborers, there is no doubt that Brazil's feudal slavery traditions are
still alive and well in pockets of its hardscrabble northeast, more
than a century after the practice was abolished. REUTERS/Rickey Rogers
