I am an egg that contains a palace, or rather, I am a palace that has been contained in an egg.

In any case, I am an underworld marvel made into a miniature so that I can travel to the upper world.

He who has the magic to turn me back into a palace will be able to enter it in the upper world, and take from it what he needs to serve the mistress of the palace.

That is all I can say. To say anything more would be to give my secrets away!
