Description "Dionysus" by Edward McCartan
Group/male/wine/ivy/panther/myth

Dionysus, crowned with ivy, stands nonchalantly, one knee sharply bent, hand on hips. He hold a thrysus over the head of a panther which curls behind his legs. A piece of drapery is draped over his left wrist and thigh. This group, originally designed in 1923, was enlarged and remodeled for Brookgreen in 1936.

The classic harmony of this figure is enlivened by the rhythmic curves of composition with its finely curved balance of line.
