Portrait of a wealthy man during Coronavirus.
Funny how history repeats itself. In the 18th century pineapples were considered a symbol of great wealth, you see them on gateways to Georgian mansions to this day. Hostesses would hire a pineapple for the centrepiece of their dinner tables, no-one was allowed to eat it... Too expensive.
Now in this time of the virus it has regained elevated status.
When it arrived today this pineapple caused me to exclaim: 'Wow, a pineapple, I'm rich'.
