Heirlooms suggest your heritage or family traits that you protect. Antique furniture can portray the ideas that you rest upon that would be associated with the past. If there is something faulty in the furniture - these ideas can no longer be 'stored' or you can no longer rest on them (as in furniture). An antique piece of jewelry can personify what you feel is valuable and precious about yourself - and also your desire for offspring. An antique carving or archeological artifact captures both the idea of the past and what is buried 'underground' or within the subconscious. Some aspect of this artifact is a representation of you. See also Ancient.
