"In Vino Veritas I (In Wine there is Truth) speaks of the rich and ancient symbolism of the grape, grapevine, and of wine. Inspired by the circling tendrils of the vine, it mirrors infinity and our deep connection to one another. Inspired by the attentive pruning necessary for the vine to be productive, it invites us to consider how we might "prune our lives" to bear our finest fruits. And, inspired by the symbolism of wine itself, it is an expression of infinite Absolute Truth - the Truth we are - in deepest community with ourselves and one another." - Carol Alleman
