What is the meaning of the pinecone statue and courtyard in the Vatican City?
Their is a huge bronze pine cone statue in the Pine cone Court within the Vatican City, during my studies, the symbolic meaning of the pine cone is to represent the Pineal gland, which (as some of you know) controls the melatonin in your body and is shaped like a pine cone, hence the name. Some also call it the “third eye”. Why then, is it present in the Vatican City? What kind of meaning do they (the church) tie to it?
Please, serious answers only.
Awwwwah come on people! Not here to answer serious questions?
