Fire-walking for fortune

, November 26, 2013

A man walks through burning charcoal as he participates in the traditional ritual called "Lianhuo", or "fire walking", in Pan'an county, Zhejiang province, China, on November 25. Lianhuo, a traditional local ritual which was listed in 2005 as an intangible cultural heritage of the province, usually requires dozens of men to walk past burning charcoal or firewood barefooted, as a way to ward off evil and pray for good fortune.
