Fig Intrigue
Fruit with a story


Hi! My name is Lucija (22) and I live in Croatia. I chose fig, a fruit characteristic for mediterranean area, as a motif. Fig has a strong symbolic meaning and deep roots in culture since it has been mentioned in numerous stories through history. As food, fresh figs are rarely found in conventional stores. In my work, I wanted to illustrate the nature of the fig as it oftenly resonates with our memories of summer holidays when we may get lucky enough to have a sweet bite straight off the branch.
