🍓Now in Fruits of our Culture: STRAWBERRIES🍓
I associate strawberries with summer, so the first symbol that came to mind was of strawberries and cream in Wimbledon. So, she wears a polo shirt, ponytail (strawberry blonde hair of course), and a visor with the ‘Strawberry Letter’ 23.
Throughout history, strawberries have remained a symbol of sweetness and goodness. In ancient Nordic culture, the spirits of dead babies grew into strawberries, as which they would be disguised from darkness as they ascended to heaven. So, the berries were often not eaten.. Strawberries were a gift from Freya/Frigga, who was a goddess of many things, including beauty, love and fertility, and cried tears of gold. Upon the transition to Christianity, it was Mary who was adopted the association with strawberries. She was said to love them so much that anyone who entered the gates of heaven with strawberry juice on their lips would be turned away.
In Shakespeare’s Othello, the handkerchief of Desdemona (who is first epitomised as sweetness itself, so that her character may be besmirched) is embroidered with patterns of strawberry plants. It later is spotted with red blood in her murder.
Strawberries were a symbol of Aphrodite, and they remain a ‘sexy’ fruit, usually when with chocolate. Folklore says that those who share a strawberry will fall in love.
However, during the middle ages, the berries were eschewed by the upper classes after an abbess declared that they were not fit for eating, because they were close to the ground where toads and snakes did slither.
Strawberries have remained an icon of sweetness, EG, Strawberry Shortcake (and her cat) and as such are open to be subverted, EG Strawberry Switchblade.
The Strawberry Moon was the name given to the full moon of July, when wild strawberries ripen.
Her tattoos features some weird strawberry worship from Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights, and the original signage of Strawberry Fields.
