The multiple uses of liquid gold

The high number of symbolisms attached to the olive tree and their wide range is due to its multiple uses. This resilient tree does not only provide its fruit and juices, but also its foliage and wood. The olive tree has defined the nutritional habits of Mediterranean peoples, but it has also been used in carpentry, wood-carving, sports, religion, even folk medicine and cosmetics, while it has also served as inspiration for the arts and literature.
