“Then the damsel took forth from her shoulders two pieces of Kamari aloes-wood, and took a bit of them, and, having lighted a fire in a perfuming vessel, threw into it that bit, and she uttered a loud whistle, and proceeded to speak words which no one understood; whereupon a great smoke aroseā€¦ And she proceeded to burn perfume and repeat spells until the sea foamed and was agitated.”

— “Guinare of the Sea,” illustration by Maxfield Parrish from The Arabian Nights: their best-known tales (1909) by Kate Douglas Wiggin
