“/…/ the significance of the metal pin, and that of the thread that is left behind by the needle are the same: it is that of the ‘thread-spirit’ (sūtrātman) by which the Sun connects all things to himself and fastens them; he is the primordial embroiderer and tailor, by whom the tissue of the universe, of which our garments are an analogy, is woven on a living thread.”
Ananda K. Coomaraswamy – “Primitive Mentality” (Q. J. Mythic Soc., XXXI, 1940)
