What Makes the Olive Tree Unique?
Symbol of wisdom, peace, triumph, wealth and abundance, the olive is a most precious gift, offered from goddess Athena to the city of Athens.
Olive trees have an almost titanic resistance, a vital force which renders them nearly immortal. Despite harsh winters and burning summers, despite being abused they continue to grow, proud and strong reaching towards the sky, bearing fruit that nourishes and heals, inspires and amazes.
- Olympic winners were presented with a simple olive tree branch. The ancient Greeks believed (as do the modern) that the vitality and the positive energy of the sacred olive tree was transmitted to the recipient through the branch.
- Jesus spent his last night before Crucifixion in an olive grove. The power and the aura of the olive trees helped him the concentrate, meditate and pray.
- Noah after the cataclysm sent a dove to bring to the ark a sign of life. The dove game back with a branch of an olive tree in his mouth. Noah knew from this that his family and the animals could survive famine and diseases.
