Dionysos - Rides a leopard

Identifier

013508

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

Dionysus did not become a leopard person, he rode leopards signifying that he had tamed his leopard characteristics.  The earliest cult images of Dionysus show a mature male, bearded and robed. Later images, however,  show him as a beardless, sensuous, naked or half-naked youth.
