A delicate scroll treated with wax to prevent decay and moth damage.
It contains the research of royal mages—research which is still rather forward-looking to this day.
The royal mages were tasked with nourishing the water and soil as well as fighting off monsters. They also served as tutors for the nobles.
Therefore, the scroll contains a wealth of information regarding history, governance, management, and culture.
When the people overthrew the royals, they exiled the royal mages at the same time,
For the mages had forsaken their responsibility to instill goodness and virtue in the nobles, instead becoming birds of a feather with them.
The inscription beneath the statue was put there by the leader of all the clans. It bore an oath of protection to Mondstadt that they had sworn.

In the age of the Knights of Favonius, the statue was rebuilt.
But the wording of the oath on the inscription was lost forever.
