Van Gogh + flowers [5/?] ↳ Almond Flowers
Almonds have been found in the ancient Greek tombs dating back to 8000 BC. In a society where philosophy was so important, the almond fruit came to symbolise knowledge, the ‘secret’ meaning hidden within, that has to be ‘cracked’ from its shell. The known and unknown world present in the almond’s form. Hence the term ‘kernel’s of wisdom’. The Romans showered newlyweds with almonds as a fertility charm. Almond trees are self-infertile and require cross fertilisation, for this reason the honeybees are essential to almond trees often colonising the trees themselves. Due to its early flowering the almond tree came to herald the arrival of spring, symbolising birth and resurrection. (x)
