Carl Jung, on the Importance of Drawing and Painting

 

“It does not suffice in all cases to elucidate only the conceptual context of a dream content.

Often it is necessary to clarify a vague content by giving it a visible form.

This can be done by drawing, painting, or modeling.

Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain.”
