In this piece from the Crespi Collection find the words in italic:
The two falling worms did warm and split asunder
the great ice-ice mountains of Isis.
They bore two holes through and carved a great dip in the tiles.
The crater, melted deep and mighty, makes a crown for the head of the two footed Earth.
The two feet, magnetic and north, lay the tiles which spell the story.
X marks the tie at the pole. This O of a crater marks the center.
What is left is the curve of the crater. It is the rightful whose cover dropped low.
The point struck at the neck and the face did turn.
This then is how the Earth was clothed.
Compare the above to this Egyptian work of art depicting Horus.
