This sculpture is dedicated to all who fully embrace life. The figure’s arms are firmly wrapped around a glass of his favorite wine, savoring the pleasure to come. His nose is prepared, ready to employ his most important faculty to determine the wine's true character. Ready to swirl and sniff, the first scents will be released and a whole new dimension of the wine (and life) will unfold. The volatile essences of the wine will be transported by thousands of nerve endings in his nasal cavity to the olfactory bulb in his brain. In this moment, his embrace will payoff with an assortment of delicate aromas. Is it apple, melon and citrus? Can cherry, honey or peach be detected? The scent of oak aging blends with the fruit smells to form a full bouquet of delight. This certainly is a sweet embrace!
This is the second sculpture in the “Wine Lover” series with the wine glass instead of a bottle. If you peek inside the wine glass, you’ll see that the inside of the glass flows directly into the figure's body, more evidence of the intimate connection between the man and his wine.
