Big Dipper

Big Dipper - Art Journal

The Big Dipper is the most visible part of the Ursa Major, consisting  of seven stars. In numerology, number seven alludes to depth and.  wisdom, always (re)searching for more, a symbol for culture’s.  endless possibilities. Considered to be the ‘female bear’ of the sky, it also hints at metamorphosis,, especially because it is strongly tied to Callisto, a nymph, and Zeus’ lover. In fact, Callisto is turned into a bear by Hera, symbolic of art and artistic creation.

In this section, our writers explore everything culture and art related. What does art reflect on a broader scale? How does it impact societal structures, beliefs and how broad can we get when speaking of artworks? This section is the place to read about interdisciplinary questions, the culmination of human creative expression and why culture may be the key to exploring and expanding (the limits of) human potential.
