Book “Minimal expressions”.
Symbols have been used throughout human history as a way to communicate complex ideas and concepts. The earliest known symbols were found in cave paintings created by early humans tens of thousands of years ago. These symbols likely represented animals or other elements of their environment.
As human societies developed, symbols became more sophisticated and were used for a variety of purposes, including religious and spiritual communication, political messaging, and artistic expression. Ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used symbols extensively in their art and architecture, often incorporating them into religious and mythological narratives.
