Jung notes in his autobiographical reflections that, among many other examples, he painted on the ceiling of his Bollingen tower the coat-of-arms that his grandfather altered from an older design. But he did much more than his: he engaged the artistic services of Swiss artist Claude Jeanneret 1886-1979, a great creator of medieval-style woodcut prints early in the 20th century, to make for him the beautiful representation that graces every book in his library.Jung’s reading of the design was that the heavenly (Christian) and terrestrial or chthonic (Dionysian) spirits are united by the alchemist’s gold star, the aurum philosophorum. This interpretation is further supported by the fact that the actual bookplate was printed with three colour blocks, black for the image, with “opposites” of silver (represented in gray) for the Moon and the Feminine, and of gold (represented by pale yellow) for the Sun and the Masculine.The motto on the bookplate is, of course, the one Jung chose for himself, which he had inscribed over the door to his home in Küsnacht. It translates as, “Bidden Or Not Bidden, God is Present.” He wrote in a letter of November 19, 1960, “It is a Delphic oracle … it says: yes, the god will be on the spot, but in what form and to what purpose?I have put the inscription there to remind my patients and myself: Timor dei initium sapientiæ [“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”]. Here another not less important road begins, not the approach to ‘Christianity’ but to God himself and this seems to be the ultimate question.”(Source: http://www.cgjungontario.com/chiron/chironautumn2010.html)
