Conclusion:

The fairy tale about lizards and birds, we clearly observe the internal resolution of external conflict with more powerful adult. Psyche came to the incredible movement. Update such important images, like a bridge, deep water, the element of fire, bird, tower, vegetation. Fortified ego longer able to stand the test of conflict, to act without backing, look for new ways to solve - conscious and unconscious.

Maxim in this composition exhibits a high ability to maintain themselves: it is daring feat Spidey, the emergence of lizards, dinosaurs, birds help from heaven. It is interesting that Maxim does not notice the ambivalence image of a bird. They rescue spiders from the aggressor and then seek to harm them, so we can regard them as a shadow aspect of the psyche, the energy of which have yet to master. Parental figures did not participate in the battle, but there were also observed. Symbol of Ouroboros, binding and essentially depriving human will to act - hidden in the sand, "zmeyuki mouth opened, that now will be!", That is, there is a further, with success, the separation from the mother, "I", a meeting with your inner Hero.

Victory over the birds, which extinguish the fire, deprived of heat and light, opens a bright prospect for the future. Whatever the test, but the internal heat of the Self will not give up without a fight, "I" (ego) will not appear deserted in the cold and darkness.
