The Pomegranate set is inspired by the Mediterranean coast, which is why I have chosen the pomegranate fruit.
It combines two metallic colors, gold and bronze that highlight the red color of the pomegranate and the green of its leaves.
The pomegranate has many medicinal properties, but it is the legends where it is mentioned that inspired me to create this set:
- According to Greek mythology, the first pomegranate was planted by Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty.
- While the god of the Underworld Hades, offered the fruit of it to the beautiful Persephone to seduce her and drag her with him.
- It was the attribute of Hera, Demeter and Aphrodite because the pomegranate has a large number of seeds, it was considered in ancient times as a symbol of fertility and fecundity.
In my country this fruit gave its name to a City and a province, its name is Granada and in the Middle Ages it was the ancient capital of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada.
