Our One Line Drawing Posters are inspired by the Picasso One Line Art Drawing Series. The Egyptian palm tree pollinates at dawn, creating a mist that originated the phoenix legend, the mythical bird reborn in a cloud of fire, smoke, and ashes.
Perhaps the Mesopotamian date-palm was the prototype of the biblical Tree of Life in Eden. Legend has it that when the wholly family fled into Egypt across the Sinai, they rested under a palm tree. When Mary could not reach the tree’s fruits, Christ commanded it to bend down, after which the palm revealed a hidden spring and provided them with water. In gratitude, Jesus promised that its shoots would be planted in Paradise.
The tree of the desert Oasis, the palm, offers a vision of refreshment – sexual pleasure and the fruits of the erotic union, redemption in the wilderness, compassion for the suffering, and bliss to those who kneel in its cool shade. Along with that line of thinking, palm trees are thought to represent the Garden of Paradise.
It symbolizes freedom, honor, reward, restoration, returning happily from a journey, and victory. A palm branch was awarded to victorious athletes in ancient Greece, and a palm frond or the tree itself is one of the most common attributes of victory personified in ancient Rome.
“Palm Tree One-liner” is featured in our “Minimalist Botanical Series.” These minimalist botanical posters are all about mindful home improvement.
