Rubens - The drunken Hercules

Identifier

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

Another possibly collaborative effort - see the Drunken Silenius.

Although drunkeness has been portrayed literally here, the original drunkeness of all the Hero figures was a reference to symbolic wine and as such referred to being 'drunk' on spiritual input - in ecstasy.
