Divine Form


Known as Dionysos to the Greeks and Bacchus to the Romans, the god of wine and earthly revelry is powerfully represented in this superb marble torso. Based on a Greek fourth century BC sculpture of Apollo, known as the Apollo Lyceus, by master sculptor, Praxiteles, it captures the idealised beauty of the divine male form as the god stands completely at ease, the epitome of relaxation.
