Amazing image of Dionysos

Image by schmoo15, which Petros found on Deviant Art and sent to me. It reminds me of one of my favorite lines from Euripides’ Bakchai (which is saying something as there’s a lot of great lines in that play) where Dionysos is described as θεὸς δεινότατος, ἀνθρώποισι δ’ ἠπιώτατος (861) [to mortals the most terrifying and most benign God.]
