This ends the images from the Perilla book, whitch gives us a rich impression about Athos in 1927.

I think it would be a great idea to restore the old tradition to give the seimenides of today their old way of clothing back (and a beard), don't you agree, or do we make Athos a kind of museum by doing this?
