The crow spelled loss of life for medieval Europeans, yet for local americans it represents a consultant from the spirit international. Dictionary of Symbols explores 1,000 symbols from around the world's cultures and in the course of the a while. in contrast to different books at the topic, it truly is really finished, together with entries, prepared alphabetically, for every little thing from amaranth (a Greek image of immortality) to ziggurat (a temple-shaped Mesopotamian icon). listed, cross-referenced, and full of over a hundred drawings, this can be an quintessential reference for writers, artists, and somebody intrigued by way of the ability of primal metaphors.
