To be strictly accurate, the island in question resembles a vulva, rather than a vagina, but don't let that get in the way of the debate. For the record, I can't stop myself wondering if the Oath Rod requires batteries . . . :o

I think I've cracked a rib, and I'm pretty sure I frightened my dog with my hysterical laughter. I'm gonna have to take a break from this thread for awhile to recover :)

Well done, that's the best thing I've read about all this.

I am basically in awe of this entire thread and am not sure whether I'd prefer it to be true or not.

Anyone taken a look at map of ile de la cite lately? There are certain simalarities. Now certain authors you would just say 'of course it is' Jordan would be a 'maybe'.

One of the more thought provoking threads raised from the depths of time.

Wow. Just... Wow. I haven't started reading this series yet. Now I'm going to be looking for symbolism.

It looks EXACTLY like a vagina to me. 
But then again everything looks like a vagina to me.

From memory there is a tower on the hill above that casts its shadow over Tar Valon. Is that close enough?

So this topic keeps popping up as the only "Related Topic" to the thread where my WIP is being worked on over in the secret Writing Group area. Every time I read the reviews of the latest chapter my eyes look down and I see "Is Tar Valon a Vagina?" and suddenly I'm entranced by the mystery once again....

If it is, I really don't want to know what some of the features of this map represent biologically.
