Seller: artemisgallery (669) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381849026932 Fine Roman Bronze Bust Applique - Silenus Rome, ca. 1st to 3rd century CE. A superb bronze cast bust of Silenus, the god of wine-making and yes drunkenness, as well as faithful companion and teacher to the wine god Dionysus, depicted with a wreath of ivy and berries adorning his head, a visage that captures his inebriated state comprised of deeply set, articulated eyes beneath an overhanging furrowed, brow, a short snub nose, rounded cheekbones, and a full beard and mustache of thick, wavy locks, and his robust, hairy chest wrapped in a flowing garland. Known to be an avid oenophile, Silenus was quite fond of the fruit of the vine and this example clearly shows his tipsy "relaxed" countenance. The surface shows a lustrous, gorgeous green patina.
