Watching over the goats of Christmas

An old man is looking by the window of the Community Centre in Crihana, Republic of Moldova, during the Christmas rituals. Leaning against the wall are three „goats” used by the performers of the New Year’ rituals. „The Goat” is a pre-Christian ritual related to the death and birth of the Cosmic elements.
