"Pomegranates symbolized to the early Jews a faith affirmation. They believed each pomegranate to contain 613 seeds, number which in fact corresponded to the number of the Torah commandments. Also, pomegranate is another suspect of being the original fruit of the Garden of Eden. In early Christian Art, the Virgin Mary is often depicted either with a pomegranate nearby, or in her hand. This was perhaps meant to symbolize the power Virgin Mary had over life and death, or the seed bearing the Son of God."
