The pomegranate grows readily in the orchards of Armenia. The pomegranate is a national symbol of life. Its symbolism comes from the Christian story. The multitude of seeds are the people that are held together by the unity of Christ’s love for all people of all nations. There are royal attributes to this fruit. The little crown on each pomegranate depicts the Prince of Peace, Christ, and his reign over our lives. The red color is symbolic of the blood of Christ while the thick skin is symbolic of the Armenian Church which holds the entirety together. On this tree, the artist moves beyond the limits imposed by the skin and present a collection of many elements held together by a human-like tree. – Fr. Vazken Movsesian
