Plague doctor is symbol of not the first, but the most famous pandemic in the history of mankind – the plague, or the black death as it is often called. The elements of the plague doctor’s protective suit remind of inevitable death, because in the Middle Ages the plague was not treated and the appearance of this doctor was a symbol of inevitability. If we take strict symbolism, then it is a symbol of obedience to fate, inevitable death and fatalism – the belief that life goes according to the predetermined from above. The mysticism of this sinister figure is difficult to exaggerate. However, you should not overly dramatize this image – it can become a symbol of struggle and resilience in our world, which suffers another pandemic, a talisman against the evil forces of the disease. Also, this image is very common in the symbolism of steampunk and rock culture, where this image is complemented by other elements. But in fact – who knows, suddenly everything is really predestined from above?
