Apple of Twistappel: origin, meaning and my vision

I called this piece of mine “Apple of Twistappel”.

Why did I call it so and what is actually origin and meaning of “apple of quarrel”?


According to Greek mythology, the goddess of the quarrel Eris threw the apple among the guests at a wedding where she was not invited. On the apple she wrote “for the cleanest”... According to her expectations, a quarrel broke out between the three goddesses. The three mighty goddesses were Hera, Pallas Athena and Aphrodite.

The impossible task of choosing between them was assigned to Paris. Hera promised him power if he chose her, Athena promised him wisdom, and Aphrodite promised him the most beautiful woman in the world. Paris gave the apple of contention to Aphrodite. As promised, “got” Paris (actually that was more kidnapping than getting) the most beautiful woman Helena. The kidnapping of Helena led to the Trojan War.


“An apple of contention is an expression for a dispute about which there is considerable disagreement, even quarrels about it.” (Wikipedia)

My Vision

Fighting, breakage and war... By poisonous thoughts beautifully breaks whole into two parts. What was once beautiful is deformed, it becomes spit. Two faces instead of one. So I see an apple of contention...
