The bas-relief we present here is a reproduction of an original by the sculptor Albert Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844).This bas-relief shows Dionysus, the god of wine, offering a bowl of wine to Cupid, the god of love. It is based on the songs of Anacreon, the famous Ionian poet, who, in addition to love poems, wrote about the relationship between love and wine, and the comfort to be found in it.
