We recently visited a carpet factory near Ancient Ephesus in Turkey. We had a weaving demonstration performed by a young lady. She was weaving a large carpet on an old loom. Our host and salesperson described how the weaving process worked.

Now I assume that modern Turkish carpets are all done on computer controlled, automated machinery. But watching the young lady work that loom, I just thought that maybe women started this. So perhaps mythological speaking we should be honoring Isis rather that Thoth.

I could see Thoth as the salesman though asking the weaver, “are you done yet?”

Edit: in the link above, I was trying to link to the picture on the lower right, showing Isis with the appropriate tool.
