Product Description

Freud's interpretation of a house...the meaning of the exotic karahsishi or "dogs of Buddha"...the mysterious labyrinth as a religious icon; symbols such as these reflect our thoughts and beliefs and appear in dreams, literature and religion-but their interpretation is often puzzling, obscure, even shocking. Now this encyclopedic work delves into the power of symbols and the origin of their ability to stir us. Explore the meanings of over 2,000 symbols culled from the worlds of mythology, archeology, psychology, the Bible, literature, fairy tales, folklore, and history. Ideal for the home library, for students, and for serious researchers, this beautiful volume invites both delightful browsing and serious study.
