CESSLogo3.jpg - This symbol represents the lineage of Orpheus.  It refers to the famous saying from the Orphic Golden Tablets:  "I am a child of the Earth and the Starry Sky".  The stars in the sky are twelve in number.  They represent the Twelve Olympians, Twelve Steps of the Orphic Journey, and the Twelve Natural Laws.  In front of the earth is a kithara (lyre) with hands on either side.  There is a story that Apollon found the boy Orpheus singing in the woods and that he was very impressed with him.  Apollon gave him a lyre.  So, this symbol of the kithara and the hands symbolizes the help of the Gods to mankind and the bond between man and Gods.

Exekias_Dionysos_Staatliche_Antikensammlungen.jpg -  Attic black-figured kylix from Vulci, approx. 530 BCE, depicting the famous story of Dionysos and the Tyrrhenian pirates.  These pirates "capture" the God, hoping for a great ransom from his people, not realizing who they have managed to find.  The helmsman of the ship perceives that Dionysos is some God, but the pirates ignore his admonition to release him.  After they set to sea, Dionysos causes wine to flow through their ship and vines to grow all about.  He transforms himself into a lion and a bear, frightening the pirates off the ship and transforming them into dolphins.  But he keeps the well-meaning helmsman saying to him: "Take courage, good...; you have found favor with my heart.  I am loud-crying Dionysos whom Kadmus' daughter Semele bare of union with Zeus!" (trans. Hugh G. Evelyn-White from Hesiod: The Homeric Hymns and Homerica, 1914; Loeb).  This image was found here: File:Exekias Dionysos Staatliche Antikensammlungen 2044 n2.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
