Book summary

Discover the truth behind every symbol with this stunning anthology of imagery. The Language of Symbols offers a pictorial compendium of symbols and symbol systems, and reveals how much can be understood from symbols. At the heart of the book is The World of Symbols, a section that covers all types of meaningful images - mandalas and mazes, creatures of land, sea and air, fabulous dragons, symbols of sex and fertility, mythical gods and heroes, architecture sacred and secular, heaven and hell, flowers and gemstones, heavenly bodies and many more. The author also looks in detail at symbol systems and shows how even people sceptical of the claims of astrology and fortune-telling can use them creatively as aids to self-discovery. [via]
