I wondered whether using this fabulous Napa Valley red wine bottle in this submission would be controversial and debated endlessly whether to use the shot or not. Then I decided to throw caution to the wind and take my chances. For me the symbolism behind "A spoonful of "lunatic" a day," - was not to constantly strive to be serious, spiritless, conventional and mundane, but embrace colorful alternatives, uniqueness and diversity.
The wine is sold worldwide and I assumed that if people were willing to buy a bottle labeled as such, surely it would not be frowned upon by a creative community.
My apologies if I offended anyone.

Not hugely impressed with the symbolism in this. I rather thought we had moved on from the days of treating mental illness in this sort of way. Technicals - some nice textural detail in the metal of the thing in the foreground. The hands look as though they have been superimposed on.
