Artist's Description

The ancient Greeks held the holm oak in high regard, although more for symbolic reasons than practical ones. The leaves of the tree were thought to be infallible and were used to tell the future. They were also used for crowns to honour people of distinction. The acorn was seen as a sign of fertility and wearing jewellery such as pendants and necklaces with imitation acorns was believed to increase the chances of being fertile.
