‘Myths and symbols of landscape and nature’

IMG_3036

 

 ‘Despite our science and our humanism our whole culture is infused with myths and symbols of landscape and nature, emblems of the seasons, of decay and rebirth, of boundaries between the wild and the tame,myths of migration and transmigration, of invisible monsters and lands of lost content.

We constantly refer back to the natural world to try and discover who we are. Nature is the most powerful source of metaphors to describe and explain our behaviour and feelings.’

Nature Cure, Richard Mabey
