A basket is a symbol of stewardship: gathering, reaping and storing precious things. Eggs are symbols of fertility, prosperity, renewal, hope, waiting/patience, and eternity. Together, this tiny basket and its gathered eggs represent the hope of the prairie settler: a good harvest, a little something put by for the future, and sweet pleasures in the bounty of the land.
