A symbol is one of the images that represents individual elements, and it has the power of metaphoric delivery to its audiences. Symbols, in animation, allows the audience to perceive various descriptions as symbols, leading to variety of interpretation. And by providing psychologically deeper meaning to the audience, it enhances the symbolic value of the images. However, detailed study regarding symbol analysis leaves much to be desired. This paper is an semiological approach to the Czechoslovakia animator, Jiri Barta, and his symbolic images, with particular focus on the darkness symbols that appear in the Czech cultural characteristics.
