La femme en rouge137

The assigning of symbolic meanings to colors is probably as old as symbolism itself.
“In fact, words are well adapted for description and the arousing of emotion, but for many kinds of precise thought other symbols are much better”. (John B. S. Haldane)

Red is the color of extremes. It’s the color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure. Our prehistoric ancestors saw red as the color of fire and blood – energy and primal life forces – and most of red’s symbolism today arises from its powerful associations in the past.

Red is also a magical and religious color. It symbolized super-human heroism to the Greeks and is the color of the Christian crucifixion. Red was almost as rare and as expensive as purple in ancient days – a fact that may explain its magic and power. Paradoxically, today’s intense red dyes come from crushed insects (the lac beetle and the cochineal).

„De fapt, cuvintele sunt bine adaptate pentru descrierea şi transmiterea emoţiilor, dar pentru multe tipuri de gândire, utilizarea simbolurilor este mult mai eficientă."
(John B. S. Haldane)
