Trunk

As a piece of furniture that protects those things that you cherish, the chest or trunk can be a symbol of the things you ‘hold’ and how you sort through them to discard what is no longer necessary. The trunk of a tree can represent the foundation of your beliefs that were adopted from your familial upbringing. The chest or trunk of the body can signify emotions or the ability to stand up for your principles. See also Chest and Purses, Wallets, Luggage, Jewels and Keys.
