C1830 Bronze of Dyonisis (Bacchus) on Sienna marble Socle
A splendid early 19th century bronze mounted on Sienna marble, this figure of Dyonisis, the God of wine, is identified by his attributes of the (removable) staff, the thyrsus, which is a wand of giant fennel, topped, in this case with a pine cone. He is also raising aloft a goblet of wine. This Dyonisis, or Bacchus, wears a lion skin in imitation of Hercules. The now rare Sienna marble is turned and encircled with a ring of bronze pearls. Probably French and Louis Philippe period, this is a wonderful small sculpture.
27 cm tall.
