Whilst the text is informative, it's perhaps more of an introduction or refresher course. The real beauty lies in the pictures, which are at time stunning for the mundane reality they portray. Like a camera capturing a mass, it is perhaps shocking to an observer how little happens in religious culture unless one if personally invested in the ritual and material culture.
