KYLIX – DIONYSUS CROSSING THE SEA Ancient Greece, Greek Ceramics
It is one of the masterpieces of the Athenian Exekias who together with the Amasis Painter, pioneered the black-figure technique in the second half of the 6th century BC. It depicts the god of wine Dionysus on a ship with Pirates, who tried to abduct him. He transformed them all into dolphins and made vine leaves spring from the mast to act as sails. Dionysus personified man’s earthly passions. He was the ancient Greek god of wild and fertile nature, of the vine and wine. The original item is at Staatliche Museum in Munich.
