Symbols can represent ideas or emotions that we struggle to express with words alone. For example, artists who have experienced trauma might find it difficult to express their feelings. Instead, they could create art using symbols and colors that communicate the weight of those emotions without verbalizing them. Using symbolism in their artwork, the artist can tell a story without reliving it in detail.
