The Pigna made and hand-painted in Caltagironeha's artistic ceramics of ancient origins.


The fruit of the pine, always and in different civilizations has enclosed within itself the symbolic meanings of life force, immortality, deities, linked to the tree that generates it, along with those of fruitfulness and regenerating force for the seeds it contains.


As a symbol of the mountain, home of the gods, we find it, already in ancient times, in the area of the Mediterranean to represent the deity; and if in the iconographic tradition of the Far East, especially In India, it stands at the apex of the Tree of Life, in the Greek one it is at the top of the tyrso, the stick of Dyoniso, god linked to the mysteries of death and rebirth, regeneration and Resurrection.
These values have left obvious signs in Sicily: the pine cone is not only often found on the pillars of the entrance gates, but is used as a top, or, again, as an ornamental element of the four edges in the double iron beds of flavor 19th century.
