#5 of 6 in the "Lost Tales of Sacred Fruit" series of miniatures painted in February 2024.

5" x 7" acrylic on board.

A ripe pear ensnared by barbed wire whispers a poignant tale of silenced voices and constrained truths. Its luscious form, restrained by the cruel embrace of metal thorns, serves as a potent metaphor for the suppression of dissent and the stifling of free expression in forbidden political discourse. Like the pear's flesh hidden beneath the sharp edges, genuine dialogue remains obscured, yearning to break free from the confines of oppression and reclaim its inherent right to flourish.

Lost Tales of Sacred Fruit

In the tapestry of mythology, the symbols of fruit are threads woven with spiritual potency, carrying echoes of ancient wisdom and cosmic truths. From the forbidden apple that kindled humanity's consciousness, Hera's sacred pears and the golden apples of immortality tended by the Hesperides, fruits are imbued with symbolism that transcends mere sustenance. They represent the cycle of life, fertility, abundance, and the interconnectedness of all beings. Each bite is a communion with the divine, a sacrament of transformation and renewal. In the lush orchards of myth, fruits are not mere edibles but portals to the sacred, inviting us to taste the sweetness of cosmic harmony and awaken to the eternal rhythms of existence.
