Bronze Bacchus, part of a luminary. Entirely naked, dressed only in a vine leaf, the god of wine is represented in an acrobatic position, his left arm raised, his other arm outstretched and his legs bent in an asymmetrical manner; head of a wild man with curly hair and an invasive beard.
Southern Germany, early 16th century Height: 12.5 cm
There is a later barrel on which he is seated (fixing holes, rest of welding)
Book consulted: G. Bekker, Figürliche Bronzen von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart, Leipzig, 2004, cat.51, p 79.
This small figure of Bacchus is reminiscent of the bronze Wild Man with a club, of similar dimensions, which also has a knee with a fixing hole, considered to be a chandelier element and which is kept in the Grassimuseum in Leipzig (inv. Nr 1927.046, fig.).
