The Judgement of Paris
Dimensions: 19" h x 6" w x 14" d
Edition Size: 40
This work is a tribute to California's wine tasting victory in 1976 over the French wines, for the first time garnering respect for California wines. At this storied event, French judges, in a blind tasting were sure that the wines that they loved were from Bordeaux. They were more than surprised to find that they had found favor with a Napa Cabernet! This event marked the beginning of the boom of the California wine industry.
This sculpture works on other levels as well. We can easily see how wine blinds our mind's eye and allows us to be led by our heart. If you are a dedicated wine collector or one who enjoys wine with dinner, you will surely connect with this sculpture.
