Luck fruit. That’s what pomegranate has been to Greeks for many, many years.
Lots of archaeological finds prove that the pomegranate fruit was known in the Mediterranean area in antiquity as it was reflected on ancient art. On Milos Island in Phylakopi, pomegranates were painted on urns (1650-1450 BC National Archaeological Museum). At Akrotiri on Santorini Island excavations brought to light urns with motifs of the pomegranate fruit (17th century BC). On Crete Island Minoan findings also carry the fruit shape in paintings (17th century BC) where in Mycenae a beautiful necklace depicts golden pomegranates motifs (National Archaeological Museum, 16th century BC). The National Archaeological Museum in Athens hosts the brass pomegranate discovered at the Acropolis.
In modern and contemporary Greek art, the pomegranate has been a source of inspiration to various painters such as G. Iakovidis, N. Gyzis, N Lytras, G. Bouzianis, Y. Kottis and to writers such as G. Seferis, O. Elytis, N. Eggonopoulos and more.
