Turn the pear upright and it’s shaped like a pitcher.
I’m probably not alone in finding the shape appealing — merely as a shape. Perhaps it’s the way it relates to gravity. Pears and pitchers offer subliminal reminders of gravity. Weighty things get pulled down toward the earth’s surface.
Different objects manifest the same effects, participate in the same beauty.
Shadows pull us down to earth too. Shadows are wonderful.
