But you're begging the question. Just because there is meaningful symbolism doesn't mean it was consciously placed there. The conscious mind is not in charge of the psyche, even though it likes to think it is. Extremely deep meaning can be placed in art by non-ego aspects of the psyche (the "Muse").
