Humanities Research (Adams): Symbolism in Art
This guide is designed to help students conduct research on art topics in Will Adams' humanities course at the Osceola Campus
The focus of the encyclopedia is on animals and their symbolism in diverse world cultures and in different eras of human history. Most entries on particular animals begin with brief zoological information, which includes the animalʾs scientific name and classification as well as its range, habitat, and behavior. Main, general entries on cultural, chronological and geographical areas include cross-references to specific cultures discussed in greater detail. Other broader entries address the significance of animals in their own environments, and still others deal with animals in the human sphere.
