History of Cane 2

The myth of Oedipus

The Sphinx asked Oedipus: “which animal crawls in the morning, stands at mid-day, and is three-legged in the evening?” And Oedipus answered: “it’s Man.”

It is easy to surmise that the Sphinx, standing motionless on the road to Thebes, had observed, that number of individuals walked with a cane. Most likely, Man’s first gesture, has been to break a branch to lean on it, or to turn it into a weapon.
