Our vision for the future is influenced by our perceptions of today, and our perceptions of today are informed by our understanding of yesterday. Revelation about our past helps build a better future. Folklore, mythology, and symbols hold a key to the window of our ancestors' lives. In order to bring to light the hidden treasures within the symbols and stories from yesteryear we must first understand the context from which they came. In "Symbology: Decoding Classic Images" symbols like the hexagram and characters like mermaids are placed in context of climate, time, and location, and they whisper to us their unique secrets. Complete with color illustrations, maps, timelines, glossary, index, and bibliography, "Symbology" is a valuable reference for students of visual language, and illuminating reading for seekers fascinated by the world of symbols and mythology. This book is a source of unique information.
