There is a practical reason for this. The ridges break passing currents, preventing the eggs which his female companion would plant in the middle, from being tossed around.

I just completed this photograph, looking towards the Dome of Hagia Sofia, Istanbul. It has been a long time since I was so satisfied, it just makes me go wild.
One egg’s lower half transformed
And became the earth below,
And its upper half transmuted
And became the sky above;
From the yolk the sun was made,
Light of day to shine upon us;
From the white the moon was formed,
Light of night to gleam above us;
All the colored brighter bits
Rose to be the stars of heaven
And the darker crumbs changed into
Clouds and cloudlets in the sky.
