This beautiful black figure vase painting by the Amasis Painter depicts Dionysus with a pair of attendant maenads. The image appears on a type of vessel that the ancient Greeks called an amphora. Amphorae (the plural form of the word amphora) were used to store such treasures as wine and oil. The body of the vase is adorned with a gorgeous group of figures. Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and the theater, stands on the left. The god is bearded and holds a kantharos (this kind of wine cup is often used as a symbol of Dionysus) in one of his hands. The right side of the vase features two women, who are often identified as maenads (female followers of Dionysus). These women are intertwined and clad in dark, intricately detailed garments. One of the maenads is holding a hare, while the other is carrying a deer. Each of the female figures is also grasping a sprig of stylized ivy. The back side shows God Poseidon with Goddess Athena. The decorative details on the vase are bold and beautifully rendered. This enchanting work is a masterpiece of the black figure style of vase painting.
