Our understanding of today rests upon who we thought we were yesterday. In order to bring to light the hidden treasures within the symbols and stories from yesterday 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 then they whisper to us their unique secrets. Complete with 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.
