Description

Iconography, or the study of symbols—be they animals, artifacts, plants,  geometric shapes, or gestures—is an essential aspect of interpreting  art. One of the most consistent features of human society throughout  time has been the use of visual symbols, which often act as  substitutions for the written word, crossing dialects and borders and  uniting understandings of the world through a shared language.  Incorporating and analyzing a wealth of cultures, Symbols in Art  serves as a reference guide to fifty of the most frequently occurring  symbols in global art history from 2300 BCE to the present day,  exploring their subtle implications and covert meanings.
