Standing Dionysus


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Dionysus stands, head turned upward and to his left, with his weight on his right leg, his left leg relaxed and slightly bent, creating a subtle s-curve. He is nude except for elaborate, high-laced and open-front boots. His hair is elaborate, with long tendrils hanging down his shoulders, curls on the sides of his head, a top knot above his forehead, and the rest of his hair coiled in a bun at the back of his neck. He wears various bands (some with fruits as appropriate to Dionysus) around this forehead, topknot, and bun. Various parts of the figure are out of proportion, including the hands, which are large compared to the arms and torso, and the head, which is quite small and especially in contrast to the overly large eyes and eyebrows.
