From the cover: “This is a fascinating compendium of symbols and their deeper meanings in individual human psychology and civilization. With over 1,500 entries and more than 800 illustrations — 16 in full colour — this encyclopaedia is a reference tool for anyone who searches for the deeper significance lying within everyday things. Tracing symbols to their religious, mythical, and/or cultural origins, The Continuum Encyclopedia of Symbols explores a wealth of objects and concepts, and the hidden or encoded meaning that lies concealed beneath their ordinary, outward appearance. Entries range from examples of metaphor and allegory to the symbolic meanings of numbers, letters, astrological and alchemical characters, as well as a rich array of abstract concepts that find their tangible expression in the universal language of symbols.”
