Description: The light from a summer's setting sun pours through the Gallery of the Candelabra, bathing this sculpture of young Bacchus in honeyed tones. The God of Wine is identifiable by the wreath of ivy and grapes in his flowing hair; the Thyrsus, a staff of giant fennel (Ferula communis); and the panther who nursed him as an infant.

Title: Honey
