The swastika has come to represent racial hatred in our world. Personally, I associate this symbol with one of the worst events in our world’s history.

In 1750 B.C.E., Hammurabi’s Code set out the laws for the citizens of Babylon. While it may seem like these laws would have no meaning in present civilization that is not the case. Many of the discretions dealt with in Hammurabi’s Code are still present today. However, this does not mean that our present day punishments are necessarily the same as those in 1750 B.C.E. Hammurabi’s Code addresses issues on divorce and theft which are all also dealt with in today’s laws in the United States, but with different consequences.

They generally follow a rule of equivalent or worse retributions after one commits a crime. Hammurabi’s Code addresses regulations from general aspects of society to complex personal matters. There are laws designed explicitly for marriage, felons, property, and debt to name a few. These laws are generally strict. For instance, if a doctor tries to treat someone and the patient dies, then the doctor has his hands removed (218).
Many authors include allegories and use symbols in their work to provide a deeper, hidden meaning for the reader. In “The Hand” by Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, she uses the color pink to represent the narrator's newness and the movement of the hand to show her realization about what her married life will be like.
There is a plethora of symbols used throughout the story, but perhaps the most evident are marriage and Portia’s ring.

The folded hands in Buddha’s lap symbolizes meditation.

In this relief, we see it as Christ the child shares the viewer his joy of starting his new adventure as well as praising the purity of Virgin Mary. There are also three angels emerging from the cloud. In the Old Testament, angel’s functions refer to convey God’s will to mankind, which in this relief the angels reminds us of their role as “annunciators (ABRAHAM, 2: The three angels). They were the ones who carried messages from god and annunciated the birth of Christ. They are the witnesses of Christ the child coming to the human world as well as proof of Virgin Mary’s virtue of immaculate. In this relief, they are the guardian of the Virgin and child as well as admirers of Mary’s pure and virgin status. With their hands holding together in prayer, they show their blessings and caring to the mother and son as well as to the human world. In addition, unlike other Virgin Mary we see in churches’ altarpieces that are usually seated on throne, we also have Mary sitting humbly on the ground in this relief.
