The sculpture is a recreation of the god Bacchus, also known as Dionysus. In classical mythology, Dionysus is the god of wine, inspirer of ritual madness and ecstasy, and an important character in Greek mythology. Although the geographical origins of his cult are unknown, almost all tragedies portray him as a “foreigner”. He was also known as Bacchus and the frenzy he induced, bakcheia. He is the patron god of agriculture and the theatre. He is also known as the ‘Liberator’ (Eleutherius), liberating one from one’s normal self, through madness, ecstasy or wine. Dionysus’ divine mission was to mix the music of the aulos and bring an end to care and worry. Researchers have discussed Dionysus’ relationship to the ‘cult of souls’ and his ability to preside over communication between the living and the dead.
