I'm delighted to have added this to the collection of bronze masks! I've had my eye on him for a while!
Dionysos, son of Zeus and Semele, was the god of wine, liquid life, fertility and rebirth in nature. Greek drama evolved from his complex cult. The vine, with its abundant leaves and clusters of grapes, wreaths his brow.
This gorgeous mask has to be straight out of Euripides! He looks like the iconic, traditional dramatic mask. His face is flanked by grapes, his brows wreathed by tendrils of vine.
|dimensions etc||Height: 26cm Width at widest point of the grapes around his face! 26cm Depth from wall when hanging: 9cm Weight: 3.7kg|
|material||Bronze. Cast using the traditional 'lost wax' method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring. Each piece is, therefore, unique.|
|country of origin||Made in Greece.|
