Sulis according to one of my symbol books (An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Traditional Symbols by Thames & Hudson) in Chinese culture pears are a symbol for longevity; justice; good goverment; and good judgment.
Thank you so much for this Lark. That does explain the pears more, especially when they're on cards like Justice and The Emperor. I'll jot that down in my journal

Oh and I think you should get this deck , it's so crammed full of symbolism that something new pops into your head with each reading (sorry for being an enabler but I love it ).
