Mount Holyoke’s Dancing Woman may represent a maenad, one of the most popular members of the mythical entourage of Dionysus, the Greek god of wine.  Expressing the spirit of the “divine frenzy” associated with rituals dedicated to the deity, she dances ecstatically to the music of her own krotala, or castenets

Terracotta bell-krater (mixing bowl) Red-figure; Greek, Attic; Classical; ca. 410–400 B.C.  Attributed to the Kekrops Painter Obverse, bull being sacrificed The scenes on the krater probably refer to an Athenian festival dedicated to the god Hephaistos. An inscription indicates that the festival was either founded or reorganized about 421/420 B.C. Although little is known about it, the events included a torch race and the sacrifice of bulls, possibly by the victors in the race.

Terracotta lekythos (oil flask) Attributed to the Icarus Painter Period: Classical Date: 2nd quarter of the 5th century B.C. Culture: Greek, Attic Medium: Terracotta; red-figure Winged youth and bird The identity of the winged figure and of the scene as a whole is unclear. The figure is most often called Icarus or Hypnos. The former seems more plausible, given the contorted pose of the figure and the position of the bird that suggests a precipitous descent.
