Dionysos was the Olympian god of wine, vegetation, pleasure, festivity, madness and frenzy. This kylix describes the various liaisons of the god. He had modest number of lovers in myth, the most well known of which were his bride Ariadne. Red-figure vase painting is one of the most important styles of figural Greek vase painting. It developed in Athens around 530 BC and remained in use until the late 3rd century BC. It replaced the previously dominant style of Black-figure vase painting within a few decades. Its modern name is based on the figural depictions in red colour on a black background, in contrast to the preceding black-figure style with black figures on a red background. It was Hand made in Greece, diameter size is approximately 11.8 inches. Our clay items are Hand made, Hand painted and not fastly made, nor are they cheaply made of substitute materials such as resin. We stick to the materials and methods used by ancient Greeks and use only top quality ceramics and paints. Do not expect "perfection" as if these clay vases was not mass produced from a machine like many are, but by hand.

Note that sizes may vary a little cause everything is Hand Made
