Pomegranates 12*14 cm
"I went down to the grove of nut trees to look at the new growth in the valley,
to see if the vines had budded or the pomegranates were in bloom."
Pomegranates have always held a unique position in the images and imagery of the ancient Jewish people, as well as among other Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cultures. They represent life and rebirth, potential, romance, erotic love, fecundity and mystery – and continue to do so to this day as anyone reciting the Rosh Hashanah blessings well knows.
