Column Of The Maenads Sculpture Pedestal
Column of the Maenads Sculptural Pedestal by Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1828). Maenads, the frenzied worshippers of the god Dionysus, are frequent images in ancient Greek art. Here, the languid, stylized trio of female nudes encircles an exquisite pedestal, hair and garments flowing in a dance of pleasure. Inspired by an antique Italian garden sculpture and cast in faux stone designer resin, it adds instant decorative art and architecture. Will hold about 50 pounds. Houdon was trained in Paris and Rome and is now acknowledged as the preeminent French sculptor of the 18th-century.
