Summary/Abstract: The article considers how prototype is established through a dialectical construction of artistic form. The conception of prototype is presented through a long dialectical examination of the relation between subjective sense and its material counterpart as a topos of symbolic being. The prototype is a regulative ideal pattern of maximum expression in artistic form. The image and its prototype establish each other simultaneously. In artistic experience, we encounter a phenomenon of correspondence. Losev presented a detailed structure of likeness in image, and showed how it involves the disclosure of the prototype.
