“There is a tree with twelve branches, with thirty apples in each branch, and each apple has a white half and a black half.” The Armenians of the pre-Christian era represented with this simple riddle the tree of life. It was the year. The chromatic duality was a metaphor for day and night, but also, for the good and bad news. And for humility in victory and consolation in defeat, they used to say: “There is always tomorrow.”
