Heavy with many fruits, branches on the pomegranate tree are warped in all directions. The intricately swaying branches,
contrasting with the quietly still squirrel in the center, give this painting a dynamic feel, a light rhythm. The blank background and thick autumnal tones express the painter's somewhat melancholic feelings for the passing season.
