Symbols in Art
Since the earliest civilisations, symbols have been an important part of art. This guide explores the significance of visual iconography around the world from 2300 BC to the present day.
Symbolism often varies across the globe. The snake, while representing sin in the west, is an object of fascination and mysticism in Aztec culture. Wilson delves into the subtle implications and covert meanings of recurring symbols such as the sun, lotus, phoenix, bow, and many more.
This indispensable book provides an entertaining and intriguing look at an essential part of art history; examining fifty of the most common symbols witnessed in different nations and eras.
