For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; 8a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey Deuteronomy 7:8
And God blessed Israel with seven special foods that grew lushly and fed the people. There are many spiritual facets to these particular items, discussed in the Mishna as well as in Kabbala. These vibrant fruits and grains flow lavishly through the canvas, mimicking the biblical phrase "flowing forth in valleys and hills”. The luscious coloring makes one’s mouth water, eager to touch and taste these fruits of the Holyland.
