"Transaction' s Eggs" is one of the symbols of fairy tales of the ancient Slavs.

An important role in the chain leading to Kashchei's soul is played by an egg and a duck. In ancient times, it was believed that an egg in the form of the sun floats in the heavenly ocean all day, and in the evening it sinks into the underworld. There, drawn by a duck, it floats through underground waters and returns to heaven in the morning. Thus, every morning the sun-egg was revived again.

It is believed that the underground sun illuminates the way for souls to the afterlife. For this reason, during funeral rites, an earthen vessel was placed next to the corpse, on which this particular star was depicted. The cradle is often decorated with the same signs to protect the child.

The connection between the egg and the sun was strengthened in the annual ritual festivals when people painted eggs to celebrate the return of the sun after winter. The symbol of the egg also took part in funeral rites: clay painted eggs are found in ancient Slavic burials - a symbol of the rebirth of the soul.

It turns out that the death of Kashchei is hidden in the egg for a reason because this egg bears him, it was originally that very sun, a symbol of rebirth and victory over winter. And Kashchei is the personification of winter and cold, the evil spirit of Karachun.
