Symbols and Their Hidden Meanings

Symbols and Their Hidden Meanings

Book - 2010
Rate this:
In this intriguing guide, both universally recognized symbols - such as road signs, political party logos, yin-yang, and the Star of David - and the more obscure - such as symbols in art and religion - are explored. Our world is constructed out of symbolic abstractions, each one with its own assumptions and messages that speak to us on the deepest levels. Across the globe, symbols are used to express meaning, represent identity, declare power and authority, convey clear instructions, and represent ideas and concepts that cannot easily be put into words. This wide-ranging study of symbolism, from ancient times to the present, will illuminate the many symbols - hidden and overt - that inform and instruct our everyday lives.
