In this series, I focus my attention on a small object that we use daily: the key. This symbol is deeply embedded into our psyche
The key performs practical tasks, such as opening and closing a door. But behind its purely utilitarian function, it’s a symbol of openness. It opens what is closed, what is hidden. It symbolizes access to knowledge which allows for discovery of truth and opening of our eyes on a particular issue. It indicates the importance of inner knowledge and discovery; therefore it becomes a tool for understanding oneself
Owning the key is possessing the means to access an external or internal discovery. The key can therefore open the door to a new dimension; and as such to becomes a symbol of freedom and power.
