This commemorative volume, containing over 400 colour and black-and-white illustrations offers today's reader an incomparable survey of the prodigious accomplishments, spiritual insights and enduring influences of one of the supreme intellects of all time.
Robin Larsen is a graphic artist, maker of assemblages and masks, small bronze figures, and giant puppets, and an art historian specializing in comparative iconography and ritual art. Her artwork is exhibited regularly in juried and invitational shows and is included in private and institutional collections and in books and journals. Robin and husband Stephen Larsen have been writing, teaching, and giving workshops together in the United States and internationally since the 1970's. Their travels have taken them throughout the U.S. and Canada, Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, Australia, Japan, Egypt, and South Africa. The focus of their work is on personal and comparative mythology, shamanism, relationship, dream work, and the creative imagination, which they explore through the medium of their own male-female dialogue. From 1982 to 1990 Robin was engaged in establishing and accessing the Swedenborg Image Archive for the Swedenborg Foundation in New York City. Stephen served on the board of directors of the Swedenborg Foundation; both Larsens have served on the board of the Joseph Campbell Foundation."
