Symbolism and Meaning of Pine Cones
THE MEANING OF PINE CONES
Fruit of the pine, it has always and in various civilizations contained within itself the symbolic meanings of life force, immortality, divinity, linked to the tree that generates it, together with those of fertility and regenerative force for the seeds it contains.
Frequently represented in Roman art, in the Christian era the pine cone was often carved on Romanesque capitals and archivolts, over time becoming an emblem of speculative and philosophical elevation.
There are still evident traces of its translated values in Sicily: the pine cone not only often dominates the pillars of the entrance gates, but is used as an ornament of every size and material.
Symbol of prosperity and good wishes, it is a very welcome object to keep in your homes or commercial offices and is often chosen as a wedding favor for important events.
