Number – Symbolism
Every number has a significance, a specific quality all its own beyond its purely quantitative value.
This deals with the single-digit numbers that make up all other numbers, and with their mystical meaning, which I have tried to portray through imagery.
What is the essence of the number one or two… or even zero? What is the meaning of a five-pointed star as opposed to one with six or eight points? Why do we say ‘All good things come in threes’? And when are we in seventh heaven?
The symbolic meaning of numbers is deeply embedded in human consciousness. Let us venture a first look into this mystical, magical realm!
