Art An Aside | Tar Valon Looks Like a Vagina. Coincidence?

hmmm….I have no idea what to think on this one. But I’m looking forward to seeing what sort of comments you get.
Absolutely not a coincidence. Jordan thought through all of this stuff, and there’s actually tons of hidden symbolism in the maps.
Wow…just wow. This certainly isn’t your typical post, Aidan.
I’ll take that as a compliment, Rob!
Where’s the little man in a canoe?
He’s floating around in the North Harbour, Doug.

Ha, that’s awesome!
Don’t forget the tall, pale shaft directly in the center of it. ಠ_ಠ
If i giggled what does that say about me???

I hear good things happen to those who are able to navigate their way around ;)
