Myths, folklore, & symbolism
Sycamore: The designation includes various deciduous trees. In Egypt it refers to the sycamore fig (Ficus sycomorus), which was regarded as a manifestation of the sky goddess. Its foliage and shade signify rest and peace in the life beyond; sometimes the souls of the deceased were thought to be birds that lived in its branches. (Herder)
