Don’t we all love a glass of good red wine? And the doctors aren’t all whiney about its benefits, a prime one being for the heart. Also, it is nice to enjoy a glass poured from a traditional wine bottle and savored over good company and food. Someone had to think out of the box, and Bordeaux-based sculptor Etienne Meneau went a mile extra. To show how wine becomes modern, the sculptor created a series of decanters. One that stands out like a sore thumb is the ‘Grand Coeur’ or ‘Big heart.’ It resembles a human heart with atriums, a ventricle, and an aorta. So when the host welcomes you home and asks you for a drink, and you choose red wine, then he will very hypothetically be pouring out his heart to you.
