“The symbolic meanings of figs preceded those of the fig tree: figs connote abundance and initiation. Ancient Egyptian priests ate them at their consecration ceremonies, and the first desert hermits ate them, too. The many seeds in the fig are supposed to signify unity and the universality of true understanding, knowledge, and sometimes faith.
The ancient Hebrews looked upon the fig tree as a symbol of peace and plenty. Mohammed’s followers called it the “Tree of Heaven.” The old Romans sacrificed the milky sap of the wild fig tree to Juno, and some central African tribes built huts for the spirits of their ancestors in the shape of the sacred fig trees.” – Tarla Fallgatter.
