Paintings of apples by Kamille Saabre to celebrate Estonia’s 100th anniversary

I would declare the apple as the national fruit of Estonia. Each of us has their
own memories of apples. Even when the farmsteads are gone and the people have left, the
apple tree still stands to remember its home. The apple tree does not give up, it bears flowers and then fruit, even when there is no one to take care of it. The apple tree is resilient – as resilient as the Estonian nation. An apple is like an Estonian, as the title of my exhibition given to celebrate EV100 tells you.
