|Title:||Windows on Eternity: The Paintings of Peter Birkhauser|
|Number of pages:||0|
Many of the dream images painted by Swiss artist Peter Birkhauser (1911 76) portray the big problems of our time: our divisiveness, possession by unconscious factors, suffering from the loss of religious values, the Unknown God knocking at the door and wanting to enter, our inability to understand evil, the world of the feminine yearning for redemption, and so on. Because the paintings of Birkhauser come from the deep wells of dreams and give them authentic form, they are mirrors of healing processes in the soul. Marie-Louise von Franz said of Birkhauser's work, His paintings are not depictions of his own problems, but rather seek to reveal what is taking place in the depths of the collective unconscious in all of the people of our time. Because of this, they are not easy to decipher: they are simply there, and wish to be experienced. This book is an attempt to track down the meanings of the mysteries in the work of Peter Birkhauser. Included are 53 reproductions of paintings by the artist.
