The hundred images in this collector's book are drawn from over 13,000 in the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism - representing artefacts carved, painted and sculpted, extending from prehistory to the recent past - from the caves of France to the temples of East Asia. The Buddha's footprint, the eye of Horus Jacob's wounded thigh - these and other images examine the body as carrier of psychological insight and sacred meaning, accompanied by texts that focus on their cultural and symbolic significance. Artists, historians, therapists, and scholars of comparative religion are among the readers who may find this a valuable insight into the power and purpose of archetypal symbolism.
