Artist's Description

The Apple and Paganism

The apple is a symbol of love, fertility, knowledge and abundance in paganism. Apples are associated to the Goddess Aphrodite and any Goddess of Fertility. The apple tree is considered a tree knowledge. Many plant apple trees as shrines to these Goddesses and for the fruit it bears both literally and figuratively. Apples are believed in general to be one of the most giving fruits from our Mother earth.

Apples can be used for a variety of rituals and intentions: those that honour Goddesses of love and fertility, love rituals, asking for abundance, and acquiring knowledge, or foretelling the future. In rituals apple seeds or bark from the tree may be ground up and used as incense, the peelings of an apple may also be burned during rituals. Apple juice can be imbibed, shared from a ritual cup or even eaten. Often times an apple will be cut horizontally to expose the seed cavity which opens up into a five pointed star

Work created using a Nikon D90 and a Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro and some methylated spirit.
