The Pigna hand made and painted Artistic ceramics of Caltagirone has ancient origins.

Pine fruit, always and different civilizations has enclosed within it the < strong >symbolic meanings of force Vitale, immortality, divinity, tied to the tree that generates it, along with those of fertility and regenerative force for the seeds it contains.
Risenas a symbol of the mountain, home of the gods, we find it already in ancient times, in the Mediterranean area to represent the divinity; and if the iconographic tradition of the far East, especially Indian, it stands at the apex of the tree of life, in the Greek one is on top of the tyrso, the Dyoniso, God stick tied to the mysteries of death and rebirth, regeneration and resurrection < br/> < br/>
These values have left some evidence in Sicily: la pigna not only is often found on pillars of the gates at the entrance, but is used as hood ornament, or even as a ornamental element of the four edges in double beds of 19th-century flavor.
