This article is based on sculpture “Bacchus by Michelangelo” that is exhibited at the Museo Nazionale del Bargello in Florence.
Dionysus or Bacchus is the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness, fertility,[theatre and religious ecstasy in Greek mythology.
“Bacchus Michelangelo” (1496–1497)
is a marble sculpture by the Italian High Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect and poet Michelangelo. The statue depicts Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, in a reeling pose suggestive of drunkenness. Bacchus is depicted with rolling eyes, his staggering body almost teetering off the rocky outcrop on which he stands. Sitting behind him is a faun, who eats the bunch of grapes slipping out of Bacchus’s left hand.
Material & Manufacture process: Cast Marble
Cast Marble statues are made
from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek Marble
stone is mixed with a small quantity of resin that works as a
glue. The mixture is then poured into a mold of the statue
design. Because the powder is so fine the smallest details can be
reproduced using this method. Over 90% of the finished
sculpture is natural crushed Greek Marble stone, which gives it a look and
feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are finished by hand to
ensure the finest quality. This strong material is water and weather resistant,
doesn’t have bubbles, will not crack, and can be washed with most cleaning
Please note: Our statues are
not carved. 100% Natural marble statues are hand carved and command a very
hefty price. Our product offerings are intended to be affordable to the
