Description
This genuine antique Classical Revival carnelian intaglio has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold ring.

The nearly naked man is depicted with his left leg raised and bent at the knee to suggest he is walking. He carries a thrysus over his right shoulder. This is a long staff wreathed in ivy and crowned with a pinecone or cones used a symbol of the wine god Dionysus and the satyrs. He also wears a petasos or traveler's hat similar to the one worn by the god Mercury. Very fine veils like gossamer flutter about him as he moves confidently against the brilliant amber background of the carnelian. - (FJ.6521)
