Cirlot on pomegranates
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
A Dictionary of Symbols – J E Cirlot
The Greeks believed that the pomegranate sprang from the blood of Dionysos…. But the predominating significance of the pomegranate arising from its shape and internal structure rather than from its colour, is the reconciliation of the multiple and diverse within apparent unity. Hence, in the Bible, for example, it appears as a symbol of the Oneness of the universe.
