Attribute

Attribute sind überhaupt alle, einer Person oder Sache beigelegten Eigenschaften. In der bildenden Kunst ist Attribut fast gleichbedeutend mit Symbol (s. d. Art.) oder Sinnbild. Die Attribute sind zweifacher Natur: wesentliche und willkürliche. Die Fackel in der Hand der Bellona, der Kriegsgöttin, ist z. B. ein wesentliches Attribut, weil dieses mit ihrem Wesen Eins ist, Brand, Zerstörung; der Schlangenstab in der Hand des Aeskulap ist nur ein zufälliges Attribut, weil die Schlange selbst nur ein zufälliges Symbol der Gesundheit ist.

B–l.
