Dancing Greek Maenad with Thyrsus: Right Wall Frieze (5th century BC)
by artist Callimachus, in the Prado Museum, Madrid
Celebrate with this amazingly sculpted frieze showing the image of a beautiful Maenad, or follower of the Greek god Dionysus. Holding a thyrsus, a wand or staff symbolizing prosperity, fertility and enjoyment, the young woman in the rapture of dance is cast in quality designer resin with an authentic, faux stone finish. Known for his perfectionism and elaborately detailed sculpts, the 5th-century artist Callimachus, credited with inventing the Corinthian capital, shows his great skill in that he has left few details veiled. This Design Toscano exclusive is perfect in a boudoir, bath or any room that would benefit from true classical flair.
