Original Artist: Unknown and is among the Greek Antiquities Collection; Louvre Museum, Paris.
This is quite a statement piece. This dramatic relief, though well-weathered, has endured the sands of time and it's acquired patina only adds to it's scholarly appeal! The piece is topped with a 1/2” glass and presently serves as a spectacular entry hall console. Additional photos upon request.
The relief is a stunning depiction of Bacchantes Dancing Maidens, also known as Maenad. The Bacchantes Dancing Maidens were followers of Bacchus (Dionysos), the god of wine. As one of the leading mystery religions during the Greek and Roman eras, they met in secret and celebrated their deity with a frenzy of excitement including playing musical instruments and dancing. It was one of the few activities in which women were sometimes left unsupervised in these patriarchal societies.
Wheatley Pottery was established in 1880. Thomas J. Wheatley had worked in Cincinnati, Ohio, with the founders of the art pottery movement, including M. Louise McLaughlin of the Rookwood Pottery, the founder of Rookwood Pottery and the Pottery Club of Cincinnati. Wheatley Pottery was purchased by the Cambridge Tile Manufacturing Company in 1927. Wheatley was renamed the Wheatley Tile & Pottery Company, moved to Hartwell, Ohio, in 1929, and stopped making art tiles. Collectors of T. J. Wheatley Pottery have been featured on the Antique Road Show. His works continue to grow in popularity, especially given the rarity of his original signed cast concrete works
