Apples of Carthage

The ancient Romans called pomegranates "apples of carthage".  My grandmother called them "Chinese apples".  We call them "superfruit".  The pomegranate has long symbolized fertility, Catherine of Aragon had one in her crest hoping to produce an heir to the throne.  I painted them for one reason: I LOVE THE COLOR OF DEEP RED!  enjoy.
