The Symbologist Michelle Snyder
Michelle Snyder fascinates, entertains, and intrigues audiences with books, classes, and presentations about some of the world’s favorite images and stories. She tracks the origin of symbols like mermaids and dragons, finds the hidden history in stories of old, and teaches why symbols are important. Her knowledge is deep and unique.
Michelle founded the Foundation for Research of the Enzmann Archive, Inc. She is an author, speaker, teacher, and publisher. She earned her MPhil in Divinity from the University of Wales. Her passion for unlocking visual language is contagious, and her presentations are educational, enlightening, and fun. She believes if you ask and seek, you can know!
Michelle’s friend and colleague, Dr. Robert Duncan-Enzmann, provided her with a foundation of knowledge that is both broad and deep. His knowledge of astronomy and physics is top shelf, and his translations of ice age inscriptions tracked the well-known Rx symbol, used to represent medicine today, back 14,000 years. Many symbols we see in our modern world are tens of thousands of years old.
