Painting was shown at the exhibition «Floral myths of Hellas», Russian Art Museum in Moscow (Russia, August. 2020). Grapes grow in clusters, and therefore symbolizes fertility and family. Vine in almost all cultures is a symbol of fertility and abundance. The vine, hung with grape brushes, symbolizes numerous and healthy offspring.
