But on the subject of artwork, it seems pomegranates have been making appearances everywhere.
These photographs are from an art center gift shop that we often visit. In a variety of different sizes, these crimson and emerald pomegranates stand at attention in tidy rows.
The white and gold-stemmed pomegranate in this photo was a gift to me upon the completion of a consulting project this summer.
My partner Figen has a matching one in red which I noticed she displays in her living room as I do. They are our trophies after months of hard work culminating in the inaugural International Women Entrepreneurship and Leadership Summit in Istanbul this past June. And we display them proudly.
I can't imagine an apple making the same kind of statement - can you?
