Omphalos of Delphi by Unknown

Lace design to signify Zeus, hid from Cronos as a baby.

One of her sisterhood lugged me squealing into life. Creation from nothing. What has she in the bag? A misbirth with a trailing navelcord, hushed in ruddy wool. The cords of all link back, strandentwining cable of all flesh. That is why mystic monks. Will you be as gods? Gaze in your omphalos. Hello! Kinch here. Put me on to Edenville. Aleph, alpha: nought, nought, one. (Joyce, Ulysses, Episode 3 Lines 35 – 40)
