Blessed Beast

September 23

Traditions endure in the Svaneti region, high in Georgia’s Caucasus Mountains. Here, a bull with candles on its horns is blessed at a tenth-century church near the town of Mestia before
being sacrificed for a February feast dating from pre-Christian times.

See more pictures from the October 2014 feature story “Medieval Mountain Hideaway.”
