Anyone have more details on the tradition? Why he's cut, what the cut symbolizes, and why the hell his mother is smiling because her child is bleed profusely from the skull?

Damn. I split my head open a few times while I was a kid, but my parents never cut me open on purpose.

so i heard about this on npr early this week. the announcer discussed the meaning of the tradition, etc. and described the flails they use. he said it was like "whipping yourself with razor wire". ow. here is a link where you can hear the segment.npr.org
