How do we know it’s Dionysius? The god is often portrayed as a youth of 15, wearing red boots and a leopard skin. This is a teenaged body, and he’s got a skin tied around his headless neck and a high boot on his remaining leg. If I could look closely, I’ll bet there are traces of red in the creases of the boot. This statue is so beautiful, in contrast to the hashed reconstruction of Sulla’s monument in front, that I just had to draw it.
