This fun Tsarouchi Pomegranate is fashioned after the famous shoes of the Greek Guard and is part of the traditional uniform.
In Greek culture, Pomegranates are looked at as a fruit that symbolizes luck and prosperity to display in your home. It is also a sign of renewal and regeneration. On New Years, there is a smashing of the pomegranate ritual still widely practiced in all of Greece, to start the New Year off with hope and celebration!
Embellished with a black pom pom, tassels and black jewels representing the nails in the shoe.
This makes a great addition to your Christmas gift giving.
Pomegranate imported from Athens and painted in my small home studio.
Approximaetely 4 inches tall.
