Baby Dionysos.jpgThis is a painting of the infant Dionysos, created by Lykeia. The myth has it that the Goddess Ipta placed a liknon (basket) containing the baby Dionysos, put it on her head and climbed up Mount Ida. Here we have Dionysos, laying in the liknon, adorned with his symbols, ivy and the pelt of a leopard. Around the basket is a snake, symbolic of Earth. Also surrounding Dionysos are the signs of the zodiac, representing the Olympian Gods and both the  Mystery months and Natural Laws over which they have dominion. The symbols for Hestia (Libra) and Hephaistos (Capricorn) are painted in red, as though they were the red candles on the altar for the Twelve Days of Dionysos, the other candles being white. Hephaistos rules Capricorn and Hestia is his Divine Consort. Ipta appears in the upper left corner of the painting with the liknon on her head.  For permission to use this image, please write this address with an explanation of what you wish to do with the picture: inquire.hellenicgods@gmail.com
