ARCHETYPES

Object or Artifact


Physical Nature of this Object
The Smith
The Smith Persistence, strength of will, patience
Basic Interpretation:
Persistence, mastery and strength of will are the solid groundings of the Smith. Like water shaping rock, the Smith employs weak and fallible flesh to forge and shape steel itself. Objects or even lives of great importance, beauty and duration can be forged by skill and time where raw power is lacking.
Aspect or History of this Object
The Shepherd
The Shepherd (Reversed) Boredom, simplistic life
Basic Interpretation:
The Shepherd stands amidst his flock, defending them from the dangers of the world. He is ever vigilant, yet humble, taking his responsibility seriously and with sacred dedication. Even if he must walk this path and face its dangers by himself, he will do so until his time is done.

Object Suggestions: A hammer, an anvil, a forge, a leather apron, nails.
