I need to do a culminating project for english class on the book I read. I read Eragon (great book, i recommend it), and I created an egg as my visual representation for it. I wanted to fill it with something so it could portray a scene in the book. If you've read the part of the battle where the Urgals come and attack Eragon and the Trolls, that's the part. I'm including an example of what I want. The only problem I have, is what to fill it with?? Maybe plaster,or cardboard. I was thinking sand, even. The trolls will be like little army guys, or If I go to the dollar store, maybe even little figures. I need ideas, what do you think will look good in there? Will it hold?
The egg, by the way, is made out of paper mache and plaster. The arrow has a meaning - all the things Eragon's gone through to get where he is.
