Reliquary

That’s a bit large to carry around, isn’t it? Most of the time, a relic is just a finger nail, or a lock of hair, maybe a small bone from the foot or hand. Makes it easy to store and keep track of. How did you ever find an entire torso of a saint anyway? Wouldn’t that constitute a crime? Oh, I don’t know, grave robbing, for instance? And why choose a container in the shape of an elephant? Very ornate, I’ll give you that, but it doesn’t seem to keep in line with the accomplishments, or even the time frame, for your relic. And yes, it seems to be out of place to call a body a relic. Look, all I’m saying is that none of this make any sense. Okay? You don’t have to get all defensive about it. I’m just saying.
