In ancient times, grapes were a symbol of abundance; of plentiful harvests and great wealth. Grape-themed architecture was a way of announcing that prosperity, letting the viewer know they are now in the presence of someone who has plenty. While today they are used - more often than not in kitchens and wine cellars - because the subject of the carving matches the purposes of those rooms, there is still a feeling of awe inspired by these intricate carvings. While not commonly known as a symbol of greatness or affluence any longer, there is still an impressive feel to the artistry involved in carving such perfect grape clusters. The ornate handiwork and attention to detail demand an impressed viewer.
Deliciously detailed clusters of plump grapes adorn many of the carved wood corbels at Osborne Wood Products.
