The ancient women of Bacchus — the maenads, or bacchants — are one of the most prolific groups in surviving religious imagery from antiquity. Artists and sculptors throughout the ages have made them their subjects. These wild women who engaged in uninhibited frenzy were considered a mystery even in the ancient world. For the ancients, the maenads represented the dangers of women left unchaperoned by male authority. Yet for many women, the worship of Bacchus allowed them to experience what life could be like as an unfettered maenad. 

Featuring a cameo of a Bacchant maiden, with grapes entwined into her long locks, circa 1880. A beautiful, thick band, this precious conversion ring will be a quality addition to any collection.
