Lighthouse Symbolism: A lone figure, a lighthouse keeper, stands at the lamphouse rail and watches the sea under clearing storm clouds

Lighthouses are rich with symbolism and conceptual meanings. In this lighthouse photo a keeper stands at the lamphouse rail and watches the ocean as the storm clouds begin to clear in the twilight. The symbols here are many: The lighthouse illustrates concepts such as danger, risk, adversity, challenge and vigilance. But it also offers guidance, salvation and safety. The keeper at the rail indicates keeping a wary eye out and being alert, while the warmly glowing lamp reminds us that security and home are well within reach. Lighthouses symbolize the way forward and help in navigating our way through rough waters whether those waters be financial, personal, business or spiritual in nature. Nothing else speaks of safety and security in the face of adversity and challenge quite the way a lighthouse does.


Concept, Metahpor and Symbology of The Lighthouse

Lighthouses are icons of symbol, metaphor and concept illustrating some of the most lofty ideals of modern mankind. The keeper, a symbol of rugged individualism, a man who keeps the lamp lit in the face of the most dire of situations, is revered as a person who put personal safety and comfort well behind that of duty and nobility. He lives alone in solitude in the most desolate, rugged and dangerous locations that he might warn the seafaring of peril and risk. The structure itself, rising tall in the sky, represents the best of man, his most lofty of ideals, a proximity ever closer to the heavens and God, and a towering signpost to guide the way and warn of danger. The beacon, shining out over the roughest and stormiest of seas, symbols of salvation and direction, leading those in danger to safety and security whether it be a danger of physical manifestations or of spiritual and moral trials and tribulation.


Use of the Lighthouse as Symbol, Metaphor and Message

This particular lighthouse image focuses in on the human aspect showing the keeper, alert and vigilant, scanning the horizon for ships as the storm begins to clear. It works extremely well when and a company or organization wants to combine the personal or human touch with the powerful symbolism of the lighthouse. Whether a bank, an insurance company, a charitable organization or some other entity that needs to get their message across of guidance, hope, assistance and vision in a world of danger, risk, adversity and challenge, they can utilize this picture. It can be cropped vertically for everything from rack brochures, to point of purchase displays to magazine covers, or utilized with horizontal crops for billboards, magazine spreads and post cards. Whether the need is for spiritual or religious messages, or for financial institutions or the handicapped, there is plenty of room in this image for headlines and body copy.
