Wandering through the buzzeling market of Rabat, Morocco's capital.
Seemingly endless rows of market stands are full of ripe, fresh fruits, vegetables and everything ones appetite could dream of, invite us to a stroll. This vendor just opened a juicy Pomegranate and placed it on top of the huge pile of ripe fruits, ready to be sold.
"POMEGRANATE's" charm and attraction comes with the brightness and contrast of its colors. The photo is taken in front of the wall of one of the houses of the medina, the medieval city center of Rabat, where the market spreads out. This very decorative piece keeps our attention beyond the first impression through the details that make us wander in it beyond the first glimpse.
Almost all the great religions of the world have sanctified the pomegranate and ascribed manifold meanings to it. It is known as a symbol of life and fertility owing to their many seeds but also as a symbol of power (imperial orb), blood and death.
