I have traveled to many places and learned much about symbols and since I was a child, I've LOVEEDDDD symbolic languages. These resonate with me so strong; simple yet hold deep meaning and ancient memories.
Mesopotamians used ziggurats. Ziggurat temples were located in the center of the city, the center of religious ceremonies. Food was also kept in the ziggurat. Today, our "ziggurats" are represented by shopping centers and other collections of buildings.
