Re: Say you had two weeks to live and a ball of clay

Id take the ball of clay, shape it into a perfect circular form. Slice into one side, and create an internal cavity, into which I would insert a real stone from a fleshy fruit growing on the island. I would leave the clay form open, so that small creatures (birds out of curiosity, beetles etc) enter it and explore it. And when I am dead (after the two weeks, that is) the cavity would gradually fill with natural debris, and other things grow from it, eventually growing over and overwhelming the clay form.
