Maenad . White terra cotta

In Greek mythology, the Maenads, or bacchantes among the Romans, are originally the nurses of Dionysus (or Bacchus for the Romans). Then this name is given to women or nymphs who accompany the god, often taken by mania, madness. They dance in honor of Dionysus that they accompany in forests and mountains. Close to nature, they are also huntsmen. They are mostly represented with ivy and grapes.
