When you first see this image from a distance you immediately think it looks familiar. Yet it's not quite what you think. Upon closer inspection you realize what you are really seeing - a unique fine art portrait of a young lady surrounded by wine bottles in the appearance of an eye.
With an iris designed from 224 empty wine bottles nearly all of which were obtained from The Wines of Colorado, I created the D'vine Eye to showcase how seemingly ordinary items can be used to create extraordinary portraits. Laying out over 18 dozen wine bottles in a visually pleasing arrangement was certainly an exercise in patience for me and my assistant, but I am sure you will agree that the effort was worth it!
