Human cultures have evolved a distinctive set of semiotic signs to indicate 'home', the place one returns to. This book surveys a wide range of semiotic signs which communicate the message 'home', including architectural elements, decorative devices and protective graphic symbols defined within a broad spectrum of societies and time periods. The role of such semiotic signs in marking and defining human dwelling places is analyzed, and the connection between a specific statement of cultural meaning ('This is my home') and the way this meaning is shared through cultural artifacts and visual symbols is examined. This analysis should be especially useful to students interested in an overview of semiotic signs, combining aspects of linguistics with the history of archetypes, semiotic theory, architectural history, and discussion of icons, indices and symbols.
