fruit of the vine.. or bush.. or tree

For the Tree of Life for church I said I would draw stylized fruit images, so I'm wondering what fruit to choose. I'm leaning towards pomegranates, but there should probably be a variety.
Pineapples don't grow on trees exactly... but they're beautiful
Any thoughts out there? What fruit should be on a tree of life?


  1. I don't know, but you have some delicious photos here!

  2. I can't claim credit, they're all gratuitous internet image theft... If anybody complains I'll take them down...
    But I think one of the great resources of the internet is image searching! Great for inspiration!

  3. Pomegranates have been used for centuries as an artistic focus, especially in Spain in areas that were under muslim rule. Granada, last stronghold of islamic art, is named for the pomegranate and it is used extensively in the decoration of this city.

  4. Wow Mom!!! you commented !! =0
    Now you're making me wonder if "pomegranate" could actually be from French "pomme de granate" meaning "apple of Granada". In Turkish it's "Nar". not as interesting.
