Through the Valley of Shadows ...

in Shadow Hunters2 months ago


It happens quite frequently that in many temples the figure of the crucified Christ, located just behind the altar and approximately in the geometric center of the head, forms two shadows on each side of the original, which perfectly reproduce an authentic Calvary. , where said shadows can be taken, perfectly, by the two thieves who according to the Gospels accompanied Jesus in the Passion.


Of course, according to classical funerary mythologies, the figures of these, of the famous thieves of Christianity, would be nothing other than the representation of the twins or Dadophores, which are seen in many graves of the Classic World, of which one would ascend to the heavens and the other would descend directly to hell.


Although in deeper aspects of Psychology, for great teachers, such as Dr. Jung, these could represent, even from a metaphorically poetic point of view, the archetypes corresponding to the Anima and the Ánimus.

An interesting interpretation of these shadows. I would not of considered them in this way. You always give me more to think about. Thanks for entering.

Thanks to you for your kind comment. Greetings from Madrid

Thank you very much for your kind comment. It is simply a sense of observation. I have spent many years traveling and taking photographic reports and that helps a lot when trying to find as many details as possible. Another thing, dear friend, is speculation, which can be shared or not, but I try to always have a personal point of view, because the interesting thing is that each one interprets their impressions in the best possible way, trying, yes, do not offend anyone. An affectionate greeting.

Well I think you succeeded in that respect. As for the attention to detail... it is a great skill. :)

Thank you very much, I really appreciate your comment

My pleasure :)
