I can only wonder what kind of idol I would be.
A great stone idol who would take generations to crush, but then would quietly fade, forgotten, into the ground?
Perhaps a wooden idol, which would burn brightly for a momment and then leave embers for people to reverently walk on?
Or a glass idol, shattering so spectacularly and leaving a hallowed ground that people fear to tread?
Maybe metal, to be melted down and reused for harvests or war?
