This book presents essays and full-colour images that evoke the hidden dimensions of archetypal symbology, exploring how symbols in art, religion, life or dreams can lead to transformational experience and psychological resonance. This exploration of symbols and their meanings from all parts of the world and all eras of history looks at etymological roots, the play of opposites, paradox and shadow, and how diverse cultures have engaged symbolic images.
