Brigard Fact #82

At the start of spring, monasteries along Brigard’s central coast engage in a delicate art. First, a raven egg – symbolizing Abdiel’s omnipresence – is very carefully drained and hollowed, leaving a small window of sorts in one side. Then, using wooden pieces carved during the winter, the monk will create a scene within the eggshell. Important religious events are most often depicted, but scenes of nature are also popular. Once the pieces are all in place, the outer shell is painted with intricate designs. Many of the finished eggs are sold to fund the monastery’s upkeep.
