God Bacchus

On this page you’ll encounter four images of the God Bacchus, as well as five drawings of Bacchante. Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, revelry, and madness, was accompanied by his wild female followers, the Bacchante. Fueled by intoxication and a deep devotion to Bacchus, the Bacchante would dance themselves into a frenzy during festivals called Bacchanalia. These rituals, marked by loud music, flowing wine, and uninhibited abandon, could become dangerous. The Bacchante, both thrilling and dangerous, embodied the untamed spirit of Bacchus’s worship. If you find these images of Bacchus and his followers worthwhile, you might also was to make time for the galleries with images of the Roman Goddess Diana and the Roman God Jupiter. Enjoy!
