Robert Graves associated the hyacinth-coloured egg of Leda with the blood-red Easter egg of the Druids, called the glain, which they searched for every year by the seashore. In Celtic myth, the red egg was laid by a sea serpent goddess, which associates her with the Nummo, who were fish and serpent-like beings.Dorey, The Rose p. 230

The Nummo, who were identified with the sacred feminine, were symbolized by the red giant star known as the Po Pilu.Dorey, The Rose p. 234 The Po Pilu star was depicted using a red egg-shaped stone altar covered with clay that the Dogon brought with them when they first came to the Cliff of Bandiagara in Mali.Dorey, The Rose p. 234

The blood red Easter egg of the Druids may have also been a symbol of a red giant star, which was a pregnant sun to the Dogon.Dorey, The Rose p. 231 The Dogon described the star as exploding as a supernova to create life in the universe.Dorey, The Rose pp. 405-407

The gas and dust particles from a red giant star form a nebula, which is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. "In these regions the formations of gas, dust, and other materials 'clump' together to form denser regions, which attract further matter, and eventually will become dense enough to form stars. The remaining material is then believed to form planets and other planetary system objects."

The Orion Nebula, which is an example of a stellar nursery, where new planets and stars are being born is visible to the naked eye and is the middle "star" in the Sword of Orion. The Dogon identified the Nummo, the Mistress (Master) of Speech and Lébé with the three stars in the Sword of Orion, known to the Dogon as the "three scorpions". The Dogon identified the middle star or nebula with the Master (Mistress) of Speech, who like the Nummo, was symbolized by a red giant star and associated with resurrection and regeneration.Dorey, The Rose p. 115

"Observations of the nebula have revealed approximately 700 stars in various stages of formation within the nebula." This would make the Orion Nebula, which is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth, a perfect regenerative symbol for the role the Mistress (Master) of Speech plays in the mythology.Dorey, The Rose p. 115
