The Secrets of the Universe in 100 Symbols
Marissa's Books & Gifts, LLC
Since the dawn of civilization, humans have felt compelled to engage with, understand, and control the universe. From 17,000-year-old shamanic cave paintings at Lascaux, France, to the ancient Egyptian mysteries of Isis and the strange runic inscriptions of the Vikings, the desire to harness these unseen magical powers has inspired, baffled, and seduced people everywhere.Organized thematically into four chapters--The Natural World, The Divine World, Signs and Systems, and The Mystic World--The Secrets of the Universe in 100 Symbols is a beautifully illustrated compendium of 100 diverse arcane objects, emblems, and icons that provide insight into and understanding of the mysteries of the universe.
