In history, for Hindus and Buddhists figs were symbols of knowledge and truth;
in ancient times, the fig tree used to have a sacred value, linked to the origins of Rome. Romulus and Remus were condemned to death for being the illegitimate sons of the vestal virgin Rhea Silva and Mars. It seems that the basket in which they were placed, miraculously ran aground under a wild fig tree, and that the a she-wolf fed them. For this reason, the fig tree became sacred and the priests of Mars took care of it.
