    Jacob's Tapestry

    January 29, 2010 by Namastafarian

    Looking at Jacob's tapestry I couldn't help but draw comparisons with a quote by the Austrian poet Rainer Wilke in which he states

    “Destiny itself is like a wonderful wide tapestry in which every thread is guided by an unspeakably tender hand, placed beside another thread and held and carried by a hundred others.”

    Again in it's interesting to note the tapestry seems to indicate rows of hands outstretching from an icon of the eye of horus towards a group of people - perhaps signifying for them to grasp their destiny. Again this is obviously just speculation but the comparison is interesting nonetheless.

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the links between Lost and Zoroastrian religion. Jacob's temple seems to resemble that of a traditional Zoroastrian fire temple. Zoroastrian temples were signified by large domed ceilings supported by large columns with a large fire at the center of the sanctum. The temple also bears a symbol of Faravahar - again Zoroastrian iconography. It also seems that Jacob and the man in black are dressed in what seems like a traditional Zoroastrian sudreh and kushti. It would be interesting if this was a reference or allusion to the old Zoroastrian myth of the two twins Spenta Mainyu and Angra Mainyu who were two opposite divinities embodying order vs chaos, truth v falsehood and free will vs fate.
