Detail from “The Angel of Prosperity”

In the painting you can actually read the coins which reveal much more than we commonly imagine. It's no accident that “In God We Trust” is on money, and Liberty, and wings, and E Pluribus Unum, Annuit Coeptis and the pyramid with the eye in a triangle surrounded by rays of light on top. Each one of these symbols leads to a suggestion, to quote from Webster's New World College Dictionary, of the care or benevolent guidance of the guiding power of the universe. Erich Fromm in his wonderful book, The Forgotten Language, tells how the wisdom of the collective unconscious speaks to us through our dreams, myths and fairy tales. Today our culture has few myths or fairy tales so the wisdom of ages is passed on by movies, advertisements and even money.
