 The analytical psychologist, Erich Neumann, has set out in this volume to make a structural analysis of an archetype. For this purpose he has chosen the primordial image of The Great Mother - an inward image at work in the human psyche, yet finding outward expression in the ritual, mythology, and art of early man, and also in the dreams, fantasies, and creative works of the sound as well as the sick man of our day. 

The text derives material from many cultures and periods. The illustrations range from the stone carvings of the Paleolithic cave man to the sculptures of Epstein and Moore.
