The Archive

The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism is a pictorial and written archive of mythological, ritualistic, and symbolic images from all over the world and from all epochs of human history. The collection probes the universality of archetypal themes and provides a testament to the deep and abiding connections that unite the disparate factions of the human family. ARAS’ mission is to bring awareness of the power of symbolic images and the profound role they play in our lives today. The ARAS archive contains about 18,000 art images each accompanied by a scholarly commentary that explores the archetypal content and cultural context of the image.

In addition to our image collection, our website offers a rich library of articles on art and symbols and a concordance that allows you to search C.G. Jung's Collected Works by word or topic. Learn more.

The Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images

Our latest publication combines original and incisive essays about particular symbols with representative images from all parts of the world and all eras of history. The highly readable texts and almost 800 beautiful full-color images come together in a unique way to convey hidden dimensions of meaning.
