Relief “Maenad with thyrsus”. In Greek mythology, maenads were the followers of Dionysus, Bacchus for the Romans, the god of wine and enthusiasm. The first maenads were the nymphs who took care of his upbringing, and who were subsequently possessed by him, inspiring them with mystical madness. This sets them apart from the Bacchantes, mortal women who emulate the maenads, dedicating themselves to the orgiastic cult of Dionysus. In many sources, Maenads and Bacchantes are synonymous, with Bacchante being the Latin meaning of Maenad.

These women are frequently represented in ancient Greek and Roman art, in fresco paintings and vases, in reliefs and sculptures, or in mosaics. They are often depicted dancing in frenzy, dressed in flowing tunics and ivy crowns, and holding the thyrsus (staff) and other objects related to Dionysus and wine, such as pitchers or grapes. The maenads represent the celebration of the Dionysian cult, where spiritual liberation, ecstasy, and enthusiasm (en-theos, god within oneself), the experience of union with the divine were experienced. Representations of maenads in classical art provide a fascinating window into the artistic expression of beliefs and mysticism of ancient Greece.

These pieces become central elements that stand out in our favorite corners such as the library, foyer, office or living room, combining with contemporary design and managing to merge the timeless beauty of the past with the present.
