NEW THEME #Dionysus
The Dionysus Cup is one of the most famous #Greekceramics
It shows part of the story of Dionysus and the pirates with the transformed pirates swimming around the ship and grape vines growing up and over the mast as Dionysus asserts his divine powers.
Note that this is Dionysus before it became fashionable to show him as a beardless effeminate youth.
This Dionysus us a partying Aristocrat with an embroidered robe and styled hair reclining at leisure!
Join me for more works featuring Dionysus next week!
