Pineapple-Symbol of Hospitality in the Home-Stained glass panel
Very pretty stained glass panel of a Pineapple. Size is 12 x 22 1/4. The pineapple has served as a symbol of hospitality and warm welcome through the history of the Americas. Christopher Columbus wrote the first account of a western encounter with the pineapple in the journal of his second discovery voyage across the Atlantic. He and his men landed on the Caribbean island of Guadalupe where the sailors enjoyed this sweet, succulent new fruit, which had already become a staple of native feasts and religious rites. This panel is made using the copper foil method. Please look for it in my other listing.
