A funny but also sad image of Kutuzov too fat to get up from his knees when bowing to the ikon. This entire procession is interesting in that’s it’s a mix of how religious the Russians are, but so much of it is done rote over and over by the chanters and priest – 20 times (and 1 Orthodox service itself is repetitive).

Pierre doesn’t know where the battlefield is because it’s all chaos, who would, really?
