Dying God and Rebirth


It comes as a compliment to all the deities who died and reborn, Osiris, Adonis, Jesus Christ, Quetzalcoatl or Attis.

We focus on a fusion of all, finding an aesthetically cycle associated with Ouroboros imagetic.

Carl Jung defended an archetype of death and resurrection as part of a transpersonal symbolism of the collective unconscious and can be used in psychological integration tasks. In a symbolic perspective we want to talk primarily of human nature and psychology, the metaphor of death as the end of a phase, like the tarot card, and birth as beginning of a new one, a concept related to the theory of spiritual cleansing. A concrete example is associated with the metamorphosis of the caterpillar, which “dies” as a caterpillar to be reborn as a butterfly.
