About this title

Synopsis:

Since the seventh century, the Hajj, or Great Pilgrimage to Mecca, has been a lifelong goal of devout Muslims worldwide. Egyptian Hajjis (or Hajjas, if female) traditionally celebrate their sacred journey by commissioning a local artist to depict their religious odyssey on the walls of their homes. This book provides a visual record of the richness and variety of this native form. 149 color photos.
