Why iceberg?

The Cultural Iceberg

The iceberg as an analogy for culture illustrates that just a small portion of cultural elements are visible, like the tip of an iceberg above water, including language, dress, and food. The bulk of what defines culture—values, beliefs, and thought processes—remains hidden beneath the surface. This metaphor highlights the complexity of cultural understanding, emphasizing the need to look beyond superficial aspects to grasp the deeper components that shape behaviors and interactions within societies.
