Symbols are everywhere, hidden in paintings, architecture, even tattoos and t-shirts. With this highly portable and comprehensive two-part manual, enthusiasts of esoteric knowledge can do expert detective work and uncover deep meanings wherever they go. Beautifully designed with annotated line drawings and "decoded" photographs, the first half offers a glossary of commonly encountered motifs and essential background on different types of symbols all organized thematically. You'll enjoy illustrated references showcasing such mysteriously adorned buildings as Roslyn Chapel in Scotland and Utah's Salt Lake Mormon Temple and learn to recognize symbols belonging to various religions and secret societies. Part Two, devoted to Belief Systems, reveals how a symbol's precise meaning emerges from specific culture, context, and use. This is the start to your personal journey interpreting artifacts of all kinds.Allan, Tony is the author of 'The Symbol Detective', published 2008 under ISBN 9781844836178 and ISBN 1844836177.
