Description
This beautifully illustrated and browsable guide explores the wealth of symbols and icons that have been used since primitive times. From Egyptian hieroglyphs and Chinese characters to Western heraldry and hagiography, Clare Gibson considers the origins, style, and meanings of the most significant symbols found in the art of various cultures, presenting them in the context of artworks and artifacts and also as individual glyphs. She arranges them by theme and type, and related symbols are cross-referenced to provide cultural comparison.
