The book is devoted to the popular stone-carving, mainly of an ecclesiastical nature, of West Thessaly in the 19th and early 20th century, or late Turkish period, when living conditions had improved noticeably for the Christian subjects. Self-taught popular craftsmen, organised in groups that travelled widely in Greece to build churches and other structures, carved stone doorframes and slabs built into the masonry in low relief, with subjects drawn from Christian worship, and magic and apotropaic symbols.
