Thank you for this detailed input. Very interesting. You’ve delved much further into the subject than me. My speciality being the earliest Sumerian writings, it came to my attention that weaving is the central theme there, emanating from the one cosmic Matriarch who, as you write, weaves our fates. I’m convinced that this figure precedes all the histories you mention, and that the various goddesses worldwide are simply later reflections of her.
The purpose of my post was to suggest that the importance of weaving on more than one level may not have been fully explored in ancient Egypt, that it was perhaps equal to the Sumerian tradition in the earliest times. I see weaving tools in the hands of the central characters there, not writing tools as they seem to be regularly described. But I haven’t studied ancient Egypt to any degree, so it remains a suggestion – to be picked up on or ignored. The spinnekrok or was, preserved for its usefulness like the comb through the ages, is a major clue.
You write that the comb represents the rays of the sun. That’s the only point where I might disagree. Despite the cosmic connection, I would say that it’s just a weaver’s comb with a practical purpose, and an abstract cosmic weaving scene carved into it for decoration. The winged stone and the vessel of the soul, known to all, were most probably regularly used as templates for tapestries and woven fabrics.
