Believers, dressed in purple, carry a replica of the painting of the "Lord of Miracles", Peru's most important Catholic religious icon, in a major procession through central Lima. The painting can be traced to the colonial era when an Angolan slave drew an image of a black Jesus Christ on the walls of a hut in a plantation of Pachacamila, near Lima. The image is known as the "Lord of Miracles", after an earthquake in the 17th century destroyed most of the city, leaving only that mural standing.
New Zealand players perform the Haka during their Bledisloe Cup rugby union match between the New Zealand All Blacks and Australia at the Forsyth Bar Stadium in Dunedin.
