Christmas Pears 6x6 oil on board
Pears have an interesting history: in Egypt they
are sacred to Isis;
in China they represent justice and purity;
in Korea they stand for grace and nobility;
and in many parts of the world they symbolize the human heart.
But why are they called Christmas pears?
Probably because of the carol that starts out:
On the first day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.
I called the painting Christmas Pears simply
because I used alot of red and green:)))
