Jung at Bollingen: The Tower, 1923

jung-bollingen-tower

I had to make a confession of faith in stone…

 

“Words and paper did not seem real enough to me.

To put my fantasies on solid footing, something more was needed.

I had to achieve a kind of representation in stone of my innermost thoughts and of the knowledge I had acquired.

Put another way, I had to make a confession of faith in stone.

That was the beginning of the tower, the house I built for myself at Bollingen.”
