Melange Challenge Archetype Angel

this weeks challenge word over on Melange blog for the Melange etsy team is "ARCHETYPE"

Title:"Angel Archetype"

According to Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, archetypes are innate universal psychic dispositions that form the substrate from which the basic themes of human life emerge. Being universal and innate, their influence can be detected in the form of myths, symbols, rituals and instincts of human beings. Archetypes are components of the collective unconscious and serve to organize, direct and inform human thought and behavior.
