Details from White-Ground Pyxis with Maenads. Greek, dates to between circa 460 and circa 450 BC (Classical), made of terracotta. Attributed to the Sotheby Painter.
Maenads, women who have left their homes to follow the wine-god Dionysus, dance around this “pyxis,” or cosmetics container. The animal-skin garments, snakes, and vine leaves are typical attributes of maenads and indicate their association with the wild Dionysian realm.
