Dionysus – Bacchus is the god of the grape harvest, wine making and wine, of ritual madness, fertility, theater and religious ecstasy in Greek mythology? Alcohol, especially wine, played an important role in Greek culture with Dionysus being an important reason for this life style. His festivals were the driving force behind the development of Greek theater. He is also called Eleutherios (“the liberator”), whose wine, music and ecstatic dance frees his followers from self-conscious fear and care, and subverts the oppressive restraints of the powerful. Those who partake of his mysteries are possessed and empowered by the god himself.

Cast Marble statues are made from a 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 agents.
