ARAS_logo_kArtstor and the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism have released more than 16,000 images documenting mythology, symbols, and rituals in the Digital Library.

The images in Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (ARAS) explore the universality of certain iconographies and themes, illustrating commonalities in the ways human beings across the world have thought about and represented different phenomena throughout time. Each image includes commentary that points to its unique cultural history and contextualizes it within larger archetypal patterns and historical developments. The collection supports interdisciplinary research in the humanities, including the understanding of images in psychotherapy and dreams. It offers support for artists and designers to search for pictorial inspiration and for people of all ages to explore the power of symbols.

View the collection in the Artstor Digital Library.

For detailed information about this collection, visit the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism collection page in Artstor.
