Archetype

According to Jung 'archetypes', or primordial images, make up the collective unconscious. They correspond to experiences such as confronting death or choosing a life partner and manifest symbolically in religions, myths, fairy tales, and fantasies. A goddess or a god can be considered as a kind of archetype, as can many images within the Tarot.
