Pear Tree of Longevity by Elspeth McLean

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

In China, it is said that one who plants a pear tree will live a long life. This is because of the longevity of the pear tree and its capability to provide many years of delicious healthy fruit- often twice a year. The play on the word ‘pear’ can also be heard as ‘pair’ making it a symbol for a love bond.

Original acrylic on canvas, 2013
