Dionysus, Rock & Wine, Archetype of Eternal Youth
Worshipped by the women of Greece, Greek God Dionysus was celebrated to mark the beginning of spring with new wine. Dionysus is also associated with the eternal adolescent, most notably with the hippie movement of the 1960s and ''personified by the rock star and the rock culture''. Rock stars such as Jim Morrison of The Doors and Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones and later by David Bowie, Prince & Michael Jackson. Dionysus is often portrayed as a youthful man wearing a wreath of vine leaves. (Gods in Everyman by Jean Shinoba Bolen, MD).

In Jungian theory, archetypes of human nature identify patterns of thoughts and behaviour of modern men with gods from Ancient Greece. The series Beyond Mythology, the Myths of Nature pays tribute to the natural world through the Gods & Goddesses of Greek Mythology, which contributed to an understanding of the laws of the universe, humanity, and our world.
