Here is “The Creator.”
The idea of the twelve character archetypes, invented by Carl Jung, is that there are universal, inborn models of people, behaviors, and personalities that influence human behavior.
Fiction writers and all kinds of storytellers use these archetypes as a helpful device when creating characters in a story. In real life, no one person fully embodies any one archetype. Rather, this is a useful device for us to describe parts of ourselves that we all have in different measures, which may come to the forefront at different moments in our lives.
Meditating on the essence of each archetype can be an inspiring and empowering reminder of the different strengths that exist within our own character. These ideas can help us answer the continual question of who we want to be.
I chose to paint animals and plants that humans have associated with the various traits inherent in the different archetypes. Some of these symbols are shared across different world cultures, others less-so.
Perhaps looking at this image will help awaken this part of your character a little bit, reminding you of a well within yourself that you can tap into when needed.
The Creator creates enduring value with innovation and beauty.
The goat is a symbol of fertility and abundance, to represent the fertile mind of a creative person.
The serpent is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols, and also represents fertility.
Orange and yellow colors represent enthusiasm and creativity, so I chose to depict orange-colored corn snakes curled around the horns of the goat.
Marigolds and golden poppies in the background, continuing the orange color scheme, are also symbols of creativity.
