This is realistically and faithfully adhering to natural colors. the browns of the citron and the green of the leaves. The actual fruit is very fragrant and is used predominantly in China and Japan for perfuming rooms and personal items such as clothing. The fruit may be given as a religious offering in Buddhist temples. According to tradition, Buddha prefers the "fingers" of the fruit to be in a position where they resemble a closed rather than open hand, as closed hands symbolize to Buddha the act of prayer. This offers a naturalistic color in an oval form. It is glazed. Depicted with various insects crawling.
