Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This design came about when I received a request for a commissioned Stole for a Priestess of the FOI. Both this design and the grapes one were used for creating her stole. These designs are being used with her permission.

In his wanderings and travels Dionysus rewarded those who had received him kindly and adopted his worship : he gave them vines and wine. He is the productive, overflowing and intoxicating power of nature, which carries man away from his usual quiet and sober mode of living. Wine is the most natural and appropriate symbol of that power, and so it is called "the fruit of Dionysus." Thus he is the god of wine, the inventor and teacher of its cultivation, the giver of joy, and the disperser of grief and sorrow.

Orphic Hymn 30 to Dionysus :
"Dionysos I call loud-sounding and divine, inspiring God, a twofold shape is thine: thy various names and attributes I sing, O firstborn (protogonos), thrice begotten (trigonos), Bakkheion (Bacchian) king. Rural, ineffable, two-formed, obscure, two-horned, with ivy crowned, and Euion pure: bull-faced and martial, bearer of the vine, endued with counsel prudent and divine: Eubouleos (Eubuleus), whom the leaves of vines adorn, of Zeus and Persephoneia occultly born in beds ineffable; all-blessed power, whom with triennial offerings men adore. Immortal Daimon, hear my suppliant voice, give me in blameless plenty to rejoice; and listen gracious to my mystic prayer surrounded with thy choir of nurses fair."
