The geometry of pinecones has been recognized and revered by cultures ancient and contemporary alike.
The Mexican god “Chicomecoatl” is depicted with an offering of pine cones in one hand, and an evergreen tree in the other. Hindu deities are depicted holding a pinecone in an outstretched hand. The Egyptian Staff of Osiris depicts two spiraling snakes rising up to meet at a pinecone.
The Celts believed pine cones represented regeneration and were used as a fertility charm. And the ancient Romans associated pinecones with the goddess of love, Venus.
Carry a piece of Arizona with you wherever you go with one of these real pinecones lovingly encased forever in copper.
