Maenads, the frenzied worshippers of the god Dionysus (Bacchus), are frequent images in ancient Greek art. Here, the languid, stylized trio encircles an exquisite pedestal, hair and garments flowing in a dance of pleasure. Inspired by an antique Houdon garden sculpture and cast in faux stone designer resin, it adds instant decorative art and architecture.
