Note regarding the color palettte :
The colors of GLASS FRUITS were derived from an Aztec and a Mayan codex, the Aztec and Mayan color symbolism mainly refers to the four cardinal directions. While there are discrepancies, it can be said that both cultures believed the physical world to be a color diamond with white, yellow, red, blue, and black being the primary colors of the four cardinal points along the path of the sun. Black is the northern direction ruled by the deity Tezcatlipoca, who is the deity of fate, night, and destiny. In addition, black is symbolism for obsidian used in tools and weapons, it was also known as Mitclampa meaning place of death. Red, the western direction, represents the red of the sunset. Tezcatlipoca and the Quetzalcoatl witnessed the first light of creation, and bind themselves to the creative and destructive forces through the vibrant and vital reds of sunlight, blood, and fire. In the east Yellow is the color of maize and death. It was believed that maize was made by deities, and was the staple food of life. Yellow has also been used to represent death, however it more so highlights the dichotomy between life and the afterlife. Blue, the symbol of the deity Huitzilopochtli, was also the deity of the south, of the sun, and of war. It was symbolized in the shape of a rabbit. Blue was also inspired by the feathers of the quetzal for its vibrancy and majesty.
