About

Follower of Bacchus is an original bronze sculpture realized by an Italian Sculptor in the end of the XIX century. Bronze casting. Made in Italy. Measures: H 100 cm. Excellent conditions. Beautiful and precious work of art realized in Italy in the end of the XIX century and representing a female nude follower of Bacchus holding grapes. This figures, in ancient mythology, wear animal skins, with the thyrsus in their hands, they ran dancing wildly in the mountains accompanied by the roar of cymbals, flutes and other instruments. At the end of the exaltation, coinciding with ecstasy, they ravaged and devoured the sacred animal (usually a deer), to take possession of the divinity itself. In this representation, we see the follower of Bacchus while drinking the nectar of the grapes, symbolically wine. She is wearing a very light dress and her head is crowned by a grapes branch. The sculpture is a beautiful example of bronze casting: it is totally realized in bright bronze. This object is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any object in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist, designer or craftsman who has died requires a license for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the license according to the final destination of the object.
