Bacchante # 9 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Here is another dreadful Bacchante. She is one of the many women who tore Orpheus apart and threw his head into the river (or possibly the sea).

This particular Bacchante is part of the group that first encounters Orpheus and can be seen in The Sandman Special # 1 (The Song Of Orpheus), page 43. She is in Panel 6 and is in the middle of the group of women, slightly to the right, holding a walking stick.

This portrait was painted by Max and it’s horrifyingly scary. I love how he really made her frightening and definitely not someone you’d want to meet…ever!!!
