+ SPOILER before you finish The Chosen
These diagrams show funerary urns of the type that appear at the end of The Chosen. Corpses are buried in these folded into a foetal position as shown. That a Master would have far less room inside such an urn than is shown is because these urns are not made for such a large body.
Funerary urns are ‘eared’ with many handles. Some of these are used, as shown, to allow poles to be thrust through them so that they can be carried. Others are used to attach the ropes that keep the lids tightly closed.
