Perhaps one of the most unique plants in the world is the olive tree.
There is a unique place in Jerusalem called the "Garden of Gethsemane". It is home to 8 olive trees, which are respected by the residents. According to biblical stories, it was under these trees that the Prophet gathered his disciples, preaching sermons to them.
🕊 In one of the legends associated with olive trees, a dove in its beak brought Noah a twig. This symbolized the end of the Flood and the remission of sins by God. Since then, this bird holding a twig has been considered a symbol of peace. After the flood, an olive tree was planted in the ground as the first tree.
The tree has a hard bark, 1/3 harder than oak. With great difficulty, wood lends itself to processing. However, carvers are respectful of the material. For the craftsmen who managed to tame this rebellious tree, it gives the opportunity to see unthinkable patterns, natural warmth and fancy fiber ornament. At the same time, each tree has its own one, allowing you to create fantastic souvenirs in a single copy.
🫒 In addition, the antibacterial properties, the inability to succumb to fungal attack, the formation of putrefactive sites and resistance to acids make wood popular. Resistance to high humidity, resistance to absorption of odors, durability are especially appreciated in the 21st century, however, as well as environmental properties.
🪆 Figurines, fantastic memorabilia will find a corner in any home, depicting the individual character of the interior style. The symbol of peace will be a wonderful gift, recalling the values sung in the Christian commandments.
