19 Mar Oranges
My oranges are supposed to enjoy the memory of sweetness and a slight hint of acidity, the scent of essential oils that come out when we press the peel.
Orange – sweet, juicy, with intense color. In religious painting, it appears in the scenes of original sin, where it is a “substitute” for the apple tree, and in the representations of the heavenly garden. The white orange flowers symbolized virgin purity, which is why in the Middle Ages they were attributed to Mary. The fruits complement the tree itself, and its seeds were seen as the seeds of a new plant and the maintenance of the species.
