Dictionary of Symbols:
An Illustrated Guide to Traditional Images, Icons, and Emblems

Paperback - 240 Pages
Published - 1998
By Jack Tresidder

The crow spelled death for medieval Europeans, but for Native Americans it
represents a guide from the spirit world. Dictionary of Symbols explores 1,000
symbols from across the world's cultures and throughout the ages.
Unlike other books on the subject, it is truly comprehensive, including entries,
arranged alphabetically, for everything from amaranth (a Greek symbol of
immortality) to ziggurat (a temple-shaped Mesopotamian icon). Indexed,
cross-referenced, and packed with over 100 drawings, this is an indispensable
reference for writers, artists, and anyone intrigued by the power of primal metaphors.
