POMaGRANITES?

I had never even tasted a pomagranite, but i must say, I am OVER THE MOON when i look at the luscious colors it has to offer!. All the shades of pinks and reds, to a rich blood red in the center to a soft delicate pink on the exterior of this curious fruit!  I purchased a couple at work, not sure why...to eat, or to paint.??
 being new to the POM world, i was curious as to how to cut it, like, a tomatoe, if you cut it wrong, you have a real mess on your hands, and it may be messy to look at as well.
The only Poms i have seen, were in pictures of paintings done by the masters...the light hitting the seeds as they are sprawled across a dish of light, the contrast of deep tissue red, and the only highlighting is atop of those delicate seeds.  Were they always as rich to eat, as to paint?  Have they always been known to be healthy, or has science just made us aware?  How could something with such posture, not be magnificent for the soul!  How could it NOT be almost the core of visual surprise and delight...where does this magnificent fruit come from?
Are there more?
