Every Pear tree has a story...
Posted on August 23 2018
Since ancient times, even before the written word, the Wild Pear tree has been honoured as a sacred tree which symbolises prosperity, good health and future happiness. In many cultures spanning thousands of years, we can find references to the fruit of the Pear tree as a symbol of divine sustenance, abundance and longevity.
The shape of the pear has represented the female form in the art world for centuries, creating a strong symbol of fruitfulness and femininity. The Pear tree is known to live a long life and produces abundance of fruit for decades. This is perhaps why the Chinese believe that the pear is a symbol of immortality and it can be found in many tapestries and prints over the centuries. It is a popular item to be donated when visiting family shrines to celebrate the lives of loved-ones because of its connection to eternal life.
