Abstract
This literature review delves into the symbolic aspects associated with snowman. The study examines the symbolism connected to both the process of constructing snowman and the eventual melting of snow. Furthermore, it explores how snowman can be seen as representations of life's patterns and natural processes. Particularly, the analysis scrutinizes snowman as integrative symbols within a broader dramatic context. The research also reveals how the cyclical processes of nature parallel the concept of individualization, leading to self-understanding and Self-realization. Through a comprehensive analysis of existing literature, this study investigates the symbolism of snowman, shedding light on their relevance in enhancing our understanding of human nature.
KeyWords: symbolism, snowman, life cycle, individualization, Self-realization
