A symbol is a device of great power: employ it wisely; heed it cautiously.

about this feature

At this feature you can explore what symbols reveal about the nature and history of mankind.

Each week Electricka explores a symbol that represents an abstract or concrete object. The object that the symbol represents may be abstract or concrete. For both the symbol and the object represented by the symbol, she attempts to present the symbol's meaning and significance, to recount its cultural and historical background, and to offer other pertinent facts and ideas, as relevant.

Symbol Of The Week write-ups are contributed by Electricka's visitors and by ETAF Staff.

The number of abstract and physical symbols and symbol systems devised by society throughout the millennia is vast. Electricka has no hope of being able to present even a small fraction of them in this feature, or even a sizeable fraction of the symbols that are still in circulation. But she'll try.
