The work is a detail reworked  of my installation in  3D.

In Greek mythology, Maenads,  and Bacchantes,in Roman mitology, were the female followers of Dionysus and the most significant members of the Thiasus, the god's retinue. in Roman mythology after the penchant of the equivalent Roman god, Bacchus, to wear a bassaris or fox-skin. Their name literally translates as "raving ones” .Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzy through a combination of dancing and intoxication. During these rites, the maenads would dress in fawn skins and carry a thyrsus, a long stick wrapped in ivy or vine leaves and tipped with a pine cone. They would weave ivy-wreaths around their heads or wear a bull helmet in honor of their god, and often handle or wear snakes.
