This is a short Video that I made with my good friend Paula Najera about Domualdito, the Animita close to Estacion Central in Santiago, Chile.
This Animita was made after Domualdito passed away in the 1930’s. This is a rough area of the city in the night. When Domualdito was about 40 years old, he was walking home in this area and two men asualted him in the street, he soon died from loss of blood from a stab wound.
He is an important saintified Animita of Santiago, many people come to him to ask for favors, and many people leave flowers, dolls, candles in thanks for what he has granted them.
