The Legend of the
One day a poor peddler
went to the marketplace to sell a basket of eggs. He came upon a
crowd mocking a man who staggered with a heavy cross
on which he was about to be crucified.
The peddler ran to his
aid, leaving the basket by the roadside. When he returned, he found
the eggs transformed into exquisite designs of bright colors.
The man was Christ;
the peddler, Simon.
And the eggs were to
become the symbol of rebirth for all mankind.
