Product Description

Synopsis

Why is thirteen considered an unlucky number? Why are the Olympic Games held only every fourth year? Why is it said that the stork brings babies? This book provides some surprising answers to these riddles and others hitherto unexplained. The study opens to view a vista of new discoveries about the original meaning of archetypal symbols, many of which are vital to our culture to this day.
