It's a terrible dilemma.
These holy images body forth Those that we love and honor.
And the Breakers are coming: those who hate and fear the beauty that we love.
So what do you do?
The archaeological record makes it clear. Time and again the old pagans chose to lay their holy images in the womb of all-protecting Earth.
Hoping, perhaps, as they did so that a time might come when the power of the breakers would itself be broken.
Hoping that some day, once again, as of old, the Mother of Gods would bring forth.
