The pomegranate possesses a very rich positive symbolism. In ancient times in the East it was considered to be an emblem for the sun. The Ancient Greeks considered that pomegranate juice was the blood of the god Dionysus and they took it to be the symbol of life. The structure of this amazing fruit is also symbolic – many grains concealed below a single skin. It is associated with the multiplicity of the Universe and symbolises unity.
The pomegranate is a symbol of fertility and abundance, rebirth and immortality, sexuality, love and marriage, as well as longevity, wisdom, spiritual knowledge, generosity and heavenly bliss.
