People of the Sun – Miko There was once a tribe of humans that worshiped the Sun. They warmed themselves in its radiance and grew strange vegetation around sacred pools rippling with light. The tribe looked forward to the Sun’s gifts, ever widening their pools to catch every drop of sacred water that the Sun regurgitated. Joining hands within the sometimes super-heated columns of the Sun’s light is a tradition shared by two young warriors in love. The Priest and the Miko reflect a moment within the tribe. A warrior that has reached a pinnacle of wisdom is allowed to soak at the bottom of the sacred pool, infusing their bodies with the powerful secretions from the eggs that lay within it.
