Celebration of the Vine

Rush to Crush

34" HT, 12" W, 12" D
Edition of 29

A perfect hillside planting, a perfect growing season and a perfect patience have produced grapes with the perfect ratio of skin to juice. At long last, the time is right – the “Rush to Crush” is on! So Bacchus and his muses have plucked a sample from the vines and gathered round to celebrate. As the grapes tumble from the juice-stained basket, Bacchus and his muses revel in the moment – their eyes sparkling, their smiles broadening and their clothing loose and rippling in the cooling evening breeze. The three dance in anticipation of the crush, arms raised and circling the harvest. It is a lighthearted mood as they anticipate the perfect glass of wine that will result from their perfect harvest.
