Bacchus!

By Chinga
The Theme: Stones and Rocks
Bacchus was the Roman God of wine, he was also the Roman God of good-cheer, hilarity, mirth, joy and revels. There was even a festival called Bacchanalia held in his honor.
In Greek mythology Dionysus or Dionysos, was the God of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy. Bacchus or Dionysos the Wine Gods were very much worshipped in mistery religions as his death and rebirth were events of great mystical reverence in certain Greek and Roman mystery religions. As a wine lover I think he's a great God! GrinGrin

I think the same with you, Isabel. The god is also related with dances, theatre and versification as you know, so I love him. A wonderful urn and you photographed it so well.
Thank you for the kind comments on my last uploads!
