Tree drawing  as a symbol of ancient people

        “The gold of Nature” by Afremov L.

n trees as a place of residence of supernatural beings (gods, the usual spirits) were not only valuable, but the tree was considered often as the axis of the world, around which the space is grouped. It grows in the center of the world and it is a pillar of heaven layers. One multicolored tree is growing in each of the four regions of the world. Such trees are considered to be as corner pillars of the sky.
The ancient Egyptians worshiped sycamore from which their goddess holds the souls of the deceased in the form of bird andgives restorative drink or food. That’s why the tree of life painting is also so popular and liked by people who appreciate the art and symbolism in artworks. In ancient China peach and mulberry trees were valuated, in the Celtic priests druids was oak, which is considered to be sacred one, as the personification of the god of thunder, and (the Greeks) king of the gods Zeus. Sacred trees of this kind, which are painted in tree painting, has a right on existence. Some of them exist partly in reality; some are partly idealized, and partly raised to a space character by almost all of ancient peoples. In Christian iconography, the tree is a symbol of life which is given by God, and the passage of its annual cycle indicates the life, death and resurrection, while barren or dead tree, on the other hand, is a symbol of sin.
Finally, the symbolism and the veneration of trees are firmly held in the minds of the rest of the ancient animism (primitive religion), where the trees are not just suppliers of wood, but also animate creatures, on which lived nymphs, and people treated the trees with a special feeling. This is indicated on the popularity of tree painting, which every person buys and hangs on the wall in the room to feel the connection with so amazing history. Nowadays we have one more symbol as the Christmas tree, which today is widely spread almost all over the world as a symbol of all the comforting green and rebirth.
