She travels by way of magic, through an areca tree that grows tall until the heavens. Her husband follows, and has to pass seven extra layers to reach his wife in the heavens. There they are given all the weaving tools and spun cotton by her parents, which they bring back to earth, to weave (again). From the second recording session with Lengu Nandene.
