Yeah, that's in The Silver Chair, and you're right, it's a wonderful scene. But then it isn't specifically Christian allegory, is it?

It is. I mean, it can be interpreted farther to fit other faiths and even political beliefs -- good allegories have lots of layers -- but the Christian interpretation is very close and clean. Earth vs. the Heavenly Jerusalem.
