As a subject of study the metaphorical rethinkings of different concepts in English and Russian languages with the components of ancient symbols, legends left their mark on the world perception of different nations. The study shows the way the linguistic sign begins to express symbolic ideas, influence the semantics of expressions, closely cooperating with the cultural space, a myth and modern associations.
