IPTC INFO
Caption" To worship Dionysus is to worship the life force. The pirates who tried to bind Dionysus---tried in effect to bind the ecstatic principle of organic growth--found they could not do it. Grapevines grew in wild profusion ivy twined madly and wine streamed down the deck of the ship. The vibrant enerygy of the earth inevitably triumps over human efforts to suppress it."
