Inside Four-Toes: Oops, we're still looking at Locke, but this here Locke has got to be Esau, right? Ben doesn't know that though, so he follows Esau-Locke's lead, just like Smokey-Alex told him to. Of course, Smokey-Alex was probably Esau, too. They reach the inner chamber and the big fire is still burning in the center. You'll be glad to know that there is an opening over it, which seems weird since they're in the base of a statue, but whatever. Oh, right. The statue's but a ruin, now. Ben looks up through the gaping hole and at the night sky, then back at Esau-Locke. Knife in hand, he then walks over to Jacob's tapestry, which is complete. Lostpedia has a good description of the tapestry, here and I see no need to re-invent the wheel. With the help of the fine people over there, I'll note the tapestry contains two quotes from Homer's Odyssey, written in Greek. The first translates to: "May the gods grant thee all that thy heart desires." The second can be rendered as: "May the gods grant thee happiness." Lostpedia has an article on Odyssey references in Lost, if you're looking for more info. As Esau-Locke's attention is directed toward something else at the other end of the chamber, Jacob watches Ben from behind a column, then finally says, "Do you like it?" He's seated, I believe, in a rocking chair, but it's hard to tell in the dark.
