Product description

This remarkable classic by a world expert on the evolution and migration of symbols explains in detail what a symbol is, how it served a culture, developed or fell into disuse. Considerable attention is paid to how various symbols have changed in meaning and form during their migrations. Among the configurations discussed: the triskelion, swastika, caduceus, double-headed eagle, "tree of life," lotus, and assorted crosses. 161 black-and-white illustrations plus 6 plates.
