Cornes de beliers / Rams’horns

The Bacchante, 1853 is a painting by Jean-Léon Gérôme ( French painter and sculptor in the style now known as academicism. The range of his oeuvre included historical painting, Greek mythology, Orientalism, portraits, and other subjects, bringing the academic painting tradition to an artistic climax.)

A Bacchante in Roman mythology is a female follower of Bacchus, god of wine and intoxication. In Greek mythology, they are called Maenads. … Bacchantes are depicted as mad or wild women, running through the forest, tearing animals to pieces, and engaging in other acts of frenzied intoxication.

This painting or the bacchantes were not really my inspiration for the underneath portrait … some mental imagery are overlapping…

I thought there would be more paintings representing woman with rams’s horns other that this one from Jean Leon Gerome ( biography in French here)
