The Symbol, as we usually call it, is the conventional representation of a meaning that goes beyond it’s aspect. As an example, the scale representing the justice. The symbol evokes abstract entities difficult to express and simply depict. Symbols are usually not universally acknowledged, in some cases we find symbols with a meaning that is understood only by members of a specific group or culture that adopted it. Sometimes the symbol is iconographic, it express exactly what it portrays.
Symbols appeared well before writings and were a conventional way of communication. In some cases they become amulets, lucky charm or defenders, sometime tattooed on the body, to drive away negative vibrations, the unknown or wild beast.
