This dataset pertains to Ziwei Fan's fieldwork conducted at Mount Qingcheng from 2021 to 2022, focusing on the contemporary Daoists' perspectives on the relationship between humans and stars. The dataset includes photographs that provide insights into various aspects:

1. Daoist Rituals: These images capture how Daoists engage in rituals to establish a connection with the cosmos and stars.

2. Daoist Daily Life: Through photographs of the monastic community, we can observe how they incorporate the cosmic cycles and star movements into their everyday existence.

3. Daoist Temple Settings: These images illustrate how Daoists interpret the patterns of stars and cosmos, incorporating them into the design and arrangement of their sacred spaces.

By examining these different dimensions, we gain a deeper understanding of how Daoists perceive their connection to the stars and cosmos. As they often say, our comprehension of the cosmos is intricately linked to our own bodies.
