gardensandtheantique Wreathed in his immortal ivy. The great God Bacchus. Dionysos to the Greeks. Beautiful Neo-Classical piece from 1800. Dionysos/Bacchus is (he still lives!) the god of ecstasy, ekstasis, the standing outside of your body. Implicit in the three things he was god of - wine, theatre and death. You get drunk. You put on a mask. You die. In all cases you become someone you're not normally. You step outside your body temporarily. Dionysos was the god who could reverse the ecstatic process to ensure you could get back in! Sober up. Take off the mask. Come alive in the afterlife. But only if you believe in him!! #faith #Dionysos #Bacchus #ecstasy #ekstasis #wine #theatre #death #mask #ivy #immortal #deathless #sculpture #god #Greek #Roman #Wallace #Collection #London 1w

gardensandtheantique Ruins of the Temple of Bacchus at Baalbek in Lebanon BUT STOP!!! Look closer! Check out the guys top right and the plastic chair and brief case bottom left. This place is ENORMOUS️The scale is simply staggering. Built in about 150 AD it was later known as the Temple of the Sun. Wonderful carvings inside show scenes from the life of Dionysos (Bacchus to the Romans) the god of wine, theatre and death. Top god!! (Don't get me going on ekstasis/ecstasy or we'll be here all day!) #Baalbek #Lebanon #Temple #Bacchus #Dionysos #god #wine #theatre #death #ekstasis #Rome #Romans #emperor #AntoninusPius #architecture #archaeology #ruins #tourism #gardensandtheantique 3mon
