This review is from: Dictionary of Subjects and Symbols in Art (Paperback)
This book will explain the things you wondered about in art, and did not know the answers. For example in one painting of Queen Elizabeth 1, why is she holding a sieve ?, answer a sign of her Chastity.
A handy reference to all the Saints,and Heroes of the mythical world.
Who were Saint Apollonia or Calypso, buy the book and you will find out, an excellent reference book
