Wild fig trees first grew around the Mediterranean Sea, in Africa, West Asia, and South Asia beginning about a hundred million years ago, in the time of the dinosaurs. A symbol of abundance, fertility and sweetness, the fig tree was held sacred in many countries. The artist’s impression of this dark purple fruit reflects multiple hues and distinct highlights that contrast with a Paris Blue and Iron Oxide Black background. The artist combines wet on wet oil paint, glazing and scumbling techniques to establish a light and shade illusion, while the rough grain of the linen canvas provides an organic texture to the artwork.
