There is an old tradition, where pineapples were suppose to mean "welcome," and so people would have something with a pineapple on it in their house, usually a pillow or a ceramic one, or on a dish. When people would be visiting them, and they wanted them to leave, they would remove the pineapple from the room (discretely), to give their visitors a subtle hint. I have a feeling that if you removed these pineapples the hint would be less than subtle.
I’ve never given much thought to lino block printing, but since I’ve discovered the incredible art works by Andrea Lauren, I’m definitely inspired to give it a try! Share this:FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail Related
