The subject is a pine cone, a deeply symbolic fruit, much spread and used here in Sicily as a way of wishing abundance and fertility, and in general as a token of good luck.
The pine cone is one of the most across-the-board symbols of all times, both in art and architecture, ancient and mysterious, a gift that's meant to enlighten your spirit. When ripe, it opens slowly and releases its seeds into the air. By doing so, it awakes self-awareness and expands the soul.
