CARNIVAL THEMES - Execution & Death

At the end of the ritual, an embodiment of Carnival as a specific character of the play is often put to trial and invariably sentenced to death. In alternative, some extensive surgery may be performed, with the excision and the throwing around of the entrails. Prior to the execution of the sentence, a will is often read out. In many cases, a great bonfire is then lit to close the proceedings.
