Spiritually the figure of the clown has the same significance as the jester, that being the ability to laugh at our foibles and idiosyncrasies.
Psychological / Emotional Perspective:
The clown will often suggest the ability to see and sense the ridiculous in life. Often there is a tinge of sadness in this, however.
Everyday Material Aspects:
In life a true clown must register his mask after which no-one else can use the same make-up and a clown can have this same significance in dreams. We must ‘register’the performance we put on for the world.
