A cornucopia is a symbol of nourishment and abundance. It is also known as the horn of plenty, and is first apparent as a visual symbol in art of the classical period. It is depicted as a large horn-shaped container, plentifully overflowing with food, most notably fruits and vegetables. In present day, the cornucopia remains a symbol in Western art and culture, specifically representing the Western ritual of practicing Thanksgiving.
