Skinship Saplings in the Sacred Grove (fragment)

Legend has it that the location of the shrine was determined by the release of a rare white lizard into the forest. Royal diviners would follow the creature until it rose up and began walking on its hind legs. At this spot, acolytes would fertilize the ground with their six fluids according to carefully timed agricultural customs. Then, returning to the spot six months later, they would confirm the emergence of non-specific tissue. Setting up a permanent compound, they would then tend the sprouts through adolescence at which time any twins would be separated and divided among the priests.
