created in 400 BCE all the way to works by modern artists such as Edwin
Romanzo Elmer, Giorgio De Chirico, and William Waterhouse.
Thomas Moore has long worked as an art therapist and has studied
religion and music—all of which have come together in this volume to
bring us an extraordinary and inspirational guide to the spiritual
solutions needed in daily life.
