News from Peru this evening as Club Alianza Lima have revealed a special 2015 kit in honour of the Lord of Miracles.
Back in the 1960’s slaves in Peru formed the Angolan Pachacamilla which performed religious services such as baptisms and funerals. One of the slaves painted an image on one of the slave quarter walls which is now known as ‘Lord of Miracles’ (the Black Christ). Four years later an earthquake hit Lima and devastated the area although the wall with the painting of Christ on remained intact. Despite numerous attempts to erase the image by different historical figures and another earthquake, the painting remained and led to the Church of Nazcarenas being built around the painting.
The Club Alianza Lima 2015 Lord of Miracles jersey has a purple base colour but features a black cross on the front made up by smaller black lines. A white Nike Swoosh is placed on the right breast with the Lima badge on the left. Cristal the clubs official shirt sponsor have their logo in the middle of the jersey.
