I have always found it curious that a pear’s shape is synonymous with catastrophe. For me, as someone who loves to observe nature, and the form it gives to so many different things, I find the pear to be among the most pleasurable. Like the human body, so often an object of desire, and fascination for artists, the pear seems almost to have been designed to attract our gaze.
