My son took these photos in the summer while visiting the Eden Project. They show some of the fourteen life size copper beaten figures representing Dionysus presiding over his maenads, which literally translates as “raving ones”. According to ancient Greek Mythology, their ecstatic frenzies were fueled by a combination of dancing and intoxication. Sounds just like a Saturday night out with the girls!!
