    Pan and Maenad large plaque

    This hand-sculptored and cast stoned with antique finish large plague represent the god Pan seducing a Maenad. Pan is the Greek god who watches over shepherds and their flocks. He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a satyr. His parentage is unclear; in some legends he is the son of Zeus and in some he is the son of Hermes. His mother is said to be a nymph. Pan is famous for his sexual prowess - he had every one of the Maenads in one orgiastic riot or another. Maenads were female worshippers of Dionysus-Bacchus, the god of mystery, wine and intoxication. They were known as wild, insane women who could not be reasoned with. The mysteries of Dionysus inspired the women to ecstatic frenzy; they indulged in copious amounts of violence, bloodletting, sex and self-intoxication and mutilation. A group of Maenads also killed Orpheus. They were usually pictured as crowned with vine leaves. The Maenads were also known as Bassarids (or Bacchae or Bacchantes) in Roman mythology, after the penchant for the equivalent Roman god, Bacchus.
