Victoria and Albert Musuem, London. Here the shepherds visit Mary and Christ in the stable, bringing gifts that reflect their status as poor men. Crucially for understanding the badge, as well as the wider cultural importance of the cherry, it is a humble substitute for actual treasure.
Cherries as marvellous, unseasonable fruit, and the themes of wealth and devotion to the Virgin and Child also appear in the Middle English romance Sir Cleges.
The eponymous knight, who has a young wife and children, prays beneath a wintry tree to be delivered from poverty. He looks up to see the tree miraculously covered in cherries.
He and his son dress in the clothes of shepherds and take the cherries to the king, who, in thanks for this mid-winter gift, raises the knight and his family out of poverty. In one of the manuscripts that preserve the text, the poet informs the reader that the knight held a Christmas feast in honour of the Virgin and Christ every year for 10 years thereafter.
Scholars have argued that Sir Cleges draws from the tale of Mary and the cherries in the N-Town Plays , although in this case the miraculous cherries translate into material riches. The literary historian Sherwyn T.
But if an icon is a representative symbol with a consistent meaning over time, then we think the cherry did have some stability. That meaning, we suggest, is an idea of spiritual riches or the hope of riches to come, frequently associated with virginity and the Virgin. The above examples all reflect a vernacular, even dramatic, motif that circulated, like pewter badges, in the general populace. And perhaps it is not too much to wonder whether these practices in Marian devotion have roots in that of Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture, maternity and fertility. Were they worn as good-luck charms, betokening a sudden harvest, whether of happiness, wealth, love, fertility or all of the above?
Was it, perhaps, a souvenir associated with a shrine to the Virgin? The link between various configurations of the Virgin, female virginity, cherries, and good fortune held wider currency in medieval Europe. Madonna and Child , c. In a tender depiction of the Virgin and Child by Massys c. The viewer may also be expected to detect, in the red tone of the fruit, the blood of the Crucifixion.
Whether, in these cases, it is related to the English modification of the legend of the date palm, or a manifestation of a more general association between the Virgin and fruit, is uncertain. The motif is nevertheless pervasive and, given that the fruits are often depicted in pairs, is a visual allusion to maternal lips and nipples.
Later, cherries appear in secular art as a motif accompanying portraits of children. Nearly a century later, Cherry Girl by Joseph Caraud is not unique in its subject, but takes a rather different approach to the fruit. The painting shows a young woman, in a provocatively ruched dress, encircling a bowl of cherries with her left hand and drawing it towards her white apron. Her right hand takes cherries from the bowl and she fixes the viewer with a supercilious, confident gaze. The threat of staining the apron at the level of her pelvis is suggestive enough, without taking into account her low-cut bodice and the cross-shaped pendant hanging teasingly beneath the curve of her chest.
Moving away from fine art and into the world of informational posters, a mid 20th-century advert for tinned fruit and vegetables, produced for the Ministry of Agriculture, suggests that tinned cherries are just as tempting as those from the tree.
A fresh-faced boy in school uniform scrumps from the bowl, in a serendipitous reincarnation of the Luttrell Psalter thief. As in the artistic trail, there is the same ambiguity here in the cherry as a symbol of purity and of desire. Cherry Girl , Joseph Caraud. Is this ambivalence the thread that connects the medieval association with the modern? The first modern instance of the cherry as a term for the hymen is recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary and dates from The accompanying quotation there is somewhat uninformative, but suggests an association between cherries and youth.
The next quotations from the s and s suggest that in prison slang cherry had come to mean virginity or virgin. The origin of this link is still hazy, however. The saying hinges on the belief that cherries are, in the end, a one-bite morsel. Perhaps this explains why it felt natural to the medieval mind to associate an unseasonal crop of mid-winter cherries with a figure whose virginity remained intact after conception; is Mary a figure of impossible abundance? Spare a thought for their rich history if they are served this Christmas: From the December issue of Apollo.
