Nixor Lux

The Nixor Lux is a 500 foot statue in the middle of Old Arafel, at the highest point in the city, which depicts Tauron the Pious at the apex of what appears to be smashed ships’ riggings, reaching up toward the sky with one outstretched fist.

As part of an annual, city-wide celebration, the statue is draped in torn rags made from the used sailcloth of ships outfitted in the harbor below. At the beginning of each festival, the old cloths are torn violently from the statue, and the pieces are distributed as holy relics among pilgrims and citizens. The new rags are then pulled over Tauron’s shoulders by a series of winches and pulleys cleverly disguised in the rigging that the statue is surrounded by. The original purpose of the festival is unknown, but the spectacle is lucrative, and at least fifty versions of the tale can be purchased from local vendors dressed as Tauron and wailing through the city streets, covered in white paint.
