ARCHETYPES

Object or Artifact


Physical Nature of this Object
The Engine
The Engine Rational thought, rules, order, unemotional, detached. Humanity over Nature.
Basic Interpretation:
A complex amalgam of gears and machinery inexorably ticks its way towards a certain, uncaring goal. The gothic clockwork of the Engine doesn't care for emotions or needs or desires, it simply exists in pure, detached order.
Aspect or History of this Object
The Beast
The Beast Inner conflict, denied desire, censorship, urges, sublimated feelings
Basic Interpretation:
The battle against the Beast takes place not on a bloody plain but in the heart and mind. The Beast represents inner callings and urges. Although often denied, desires and feelings effect outward actions.

Object Suggestions: A plow, a machine, gears, tools, a dam.
