Another important work born from Michelangelo’s Carrara marble, is certainly the Bacchus:

From a stylistic point of view, the statue of Buonarroti represents Bacchus, a divinity belonging to the Roman world and derived in turn from the ancient Greek tradition, where this god was identified with the name of Dionysus.

Michelangelo chooses to represent the god in a youthful robe holding a cup, while he is staggering due to drunkenness. Behind Bacchus there is a small satyr, who, taking advantage of the moment of weakness of the god, takes the opportunity to eat grapes in secret.

The strong realism of the scene proposed by Michelangelo allowed him at the time to obtain countless recognitions from those who admired this statue, being struck by the exceptional fluidity and verisimilitude of the drunken Bacchus movement; in the same way, the choice of wanting to include the little satyr within the composition serves to induce the viewer to walk around the statue, appreciating every single detail of the complex.
