For thousands of years, pearls have been prized as symbols of wealth, of the moon, as well as femininity and fertility. Venus the goddess of love, as well as the pearl, also came from the sea.
The pearl is said to symbolize purity, fertility and the cycle of life if given in love.
This piece entitled “Pearl” 6” x 12” shows the beautiful mermaid holding the pearl as if to offer it to the viewer. This gentle, kindly gesture is reflective of her sweet loving nature.
