Even with the restoration of representational religious arts by the Empress Theodora and her son Michael, abstraction powerfully inflected the visual arts.

In his account Freud defers to Otto Rank’s analysis of the doppelgänger:⁴⁹ [Rank] has gone into the connections which the “double” has with reflections in mirrors, with shadows, with guardian spirits, with the belief in the soul and with the fear of death. .

Freud argues that there are two classes of repressed material that can produce the uncanny. ” Among these is the castration complex. Freud associates the uncanny sensation reported when individuals confront “dismembered limbs, a severed head, a hand cut off at the wrist” as a response to repressed castration anxiety. Most often, though, an experience of the uncanny coincides with a reminder of one’s own mortality via the sight of dead bodies or some encounter with death.
