indeed, i always found the image gorgeous myself...shame Foxeye doesn't seem to do art anymore. anyway as i said, regardless of if Yurek did in fact shape it or not, it still remains magic. i just can't seem to think of any other technology the Sun folk use...they are rather simplistic, despite the brilliance of what they CAN do...i mean forgeing and weaving are no easy tasks. but it feels like much of what they accomplish greatest is done through magic...via rockshaping, like for the well. though perhaps the crank and pulley system for the well could be considered rather ingenious technology for the age. i don't think humans would invent something like that for a few more millenia.
