About Archetype

What is an archetype?  To me the best description comes from Borges, to paraphrase again, a prototype idea personified whose virtues do not diminish with time. 

Some examples could be Explorer, warrior, caregiver, adventurer, and on and on.  But, sorry to pick on Batman...for example, Batman is not an archetype.  He is a specific person, but his virtues comes from one or more archetypes, as in Hero, or defender.

Archetype "...like a Platonic archetype, an object whose virtues are not diminished by the passage of time." --Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986) That being said, your avatar could get its virtues from many archetypes. Use yours, or an avatar to depict an archetype. If you choose, please note if your submission has sub-archetypes. Submit an avatar as an archetype. Archetypes can be be good, evil, neutral, it is a wide open topic. An archetype is an original pattern or model that represents ideas(avatars) of the same type.
