Sublime eggs

by ahazlett

From elsewhere, two wonderful pictures of and recipes for ostrich eggs; first, a deviled ostrich egg:

And, second, a Scotch ostrich egg:

These recall Kant’s discussion of the mathematically sublime, which he described as that which is “absolutely large” or “large without qualification,” but also suggest the ideal absent from Kant’s discussion: that which is absolutely small, or small without qualification.  In other words, the deviled or Scotched quail egg.
