The Book of symbols James C. Harris

The Book of Symbols combines approximately 350 original essays about particular symbols with images from cave art to contemporary art. The thought-provoking texts and 800 beautiful, full-color images come together in a unique way to convey hidden dimensions of meaning.
"Poised at the brink of consciousness, from the depths of the psyche images come alive as living symbols and portend new possibilities. The Book of Symbols is an essential guide to symbol images for therapists, artists, art historians, designers, writers, students and all explorers of the inner life. Highly recommended !"
