Carpet



"In fairy tales, as in mythos, the carpet signifies a form of locomotion, but of a certain kind - the kind that enables us to see into the world and into the underlife as well. In the Middle Eastern stories, it is the vehicle for spirit flight of the shamans. The body is no dumb thing from which we struggle to free ourselves. In proper perspective, it is a rocket ship, a series of atomic cloverleaves, a tangle of neurological umbilici to other worlds and experiences."

Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women who run with the Wolves, Ryder, London 1992, p.205
