ARCHETYPES


The Past
Regret

Regret

Regret, lost opportunities, looking back instead of forward, dwelling on the past
Basic Interpretation:
A woman stands looking out to sea at the ship that carries her love away. Too late, she has read his letter and thinks back with Regret on what may have been. She now knows her mistake - all she has is her emotions and the knowledge that what has passed cannot be changed.

The Present
Golem

Golem

(Reversed) Natural, organic, something which complements its environment
Basic Interpretation:
Animate, yet without life, the Golem is the epitome of humanity's unnatural creations. While the Golem bears superficial tokens of human nature and appearance, it exists outside of the natural cycles of life and death. It has no inner beauty, nor does it have any intrinsic ties to nature itself.

The Future
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.
