The pomegranate, in the myth of Persephone, is the symbol of the indissolubility of the relationship, of the link. It is because Persephone disappears from the face of the earth at each winter to come back in the spring that the pomegranate, considered one of her attributes, became a symbol of fecundity and renovation.

(Maurice Druon, The Memories of Zeus)
