To Pastor Jakob Amstutz

Dear Pastor Amstutz, 23 January 1948

Thank you very much for the extremely interesting picture.

It is a kind of St. George, whose lower half is a dragon.

A most unusual picture!

It is as though consciousness were aware that the dragon is the lower half of man, which indeed and in truth is the case.

One can therefore take this picture as a representation of the inner conflict or of its opposite-an expression of the fact that dragon and hero actually belong together and are one.

This insight ca n be documented from mythology and would have far-reaching consequences if it were .examined from the point of view of comparative religion.

With best thanks, •

Yours sincerely,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Page 489.
