Pomegranates (Punica granatum), anor in Uzbek, and anar or anur (анар or анuр) in Tatar, are Amira’s favorite food, as well as a favorite motif in Turkic arts. Mori Kaoru-san may have chosen pomegranates because of the possible pun; Amira’s name being amiru in Japanese, and anar being anaru. Due to their profuse seeds, pomegranates represent fertility in many cultures, including Islamic and Uzbek cultures.
