Overview


A companion volume to James Hall’s perennial seller Dictionary of Subjects and Symbols in Art, which deals with the subject of Christian and Western art, the present volume includes the art of Egypt, the ancient Near East, Christian and classical Europe, India and the Far East.

The book explains and interprets symbols from many cultures, and over 600 illustrations clarify and complement the text.
