The drum is decorated with a snail and a shrew in haut-relief. The circular base with three legs topped by three crickets and decorated with ivy and berries. At the end of the nineteenth century, the taste for naturalism with sculpturors like Antoine-Louis Barye, Auguste Cain and Pierre-Jules Mêne takes place in decorative objects. Illustrations: Dionysus is represented wearing the skin of a fawn he holds in one hand and the other the thyrsus, its main attribute. The Maenad (Bacchante in Roman) in an active position, twirling her hands on her chest, refer to Bacchanalia.
