Flowers and Fruits

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


Floral and fruit motifs have been part of the iconography of the Bank of Spain since it was founded in 1782. Symbols such as the cornucopia or horn of plenty, which since ancient times have sponsored prosperity and celebrated generosity, are not only present in banknotes’ decorations, bank’s shares and administrative documents, but also repeated in the sculptural decorations on the facades and interiors of its own buildings and in the stained glass windows that cover some of the Bank's spaces.
