The inspiration for this simple piece comes from living in beautiful Sonoma County California, also know as 'wine country', and often called 'God's Country'.
Although it is structurally simple in design, this piece is complex on many levels, and it 'speaks to people in different ways.
- Most find it humorous.
- Some find it deep with meaning and symbolism.
- A few, 'gasp' when they get it . . .
- A couple have simply asked, " is that a clothes hanger?"
A couple of years ago, I made a similar, smaller piece also titled "Wine Tasting". It was so much fun to make, I wanted to do it again.
A resin plaque featuring the last supper has been cut to fit inside a game box lid. Vintage wooden hangers and rulers frame the scene. The lid box is covered inside and out in vintage decorator papers. The piece is signed, dated and ready to hang.
