Sport as art

If you ever had any doubts that rugby in New Zealand is a religion, consider how it treats its icons: fetishistic veneration, cloaked in magic-power giving robes.
Even if you are a secular heathen, notice how the body has become priceless art that has to be handled with gloves so no human traces are left on the masterpiece.
