This is a Boris Vallejo inspired watercolor depicting a man slaying a dragon. The dragon’s tail is encircling a helpless woman while her hero attempts to rescue her. According to Carl Jung, the dragon or snake is a symbol of a guardian of our subconscious that we battle with as it prevents us from reaching our collective unconscious. The anima is the female aspect present in the collective unconscious of men, and the animus is the male aspect present in the collective unconscious of women. Together, they are referred to as syzygy.
