Synopsis

Acclaimed author of The Soul's Code and one of our most provocative and resonant Jungian thinkers, James Hillman joins with artist Margot McLean in this collaboration, a reflection on the presence and fading of animals in our waking lives, and consequently in our dreams and imaginings, our emotions and thoughts. Dream Animals weaves art and psychology, dream and symbol, Jungianism and lore together with evocative paintings that resonate with Hillman's absorbing essays. An insightful meditation on the implications of losing animal imagery from our consciousness, Dream Animals is the perfect union of word and symbol.
