|Description||English: Agave with the head of Pentheus. In her right she grasps by the hair the head of her son, in her left a thyrsus capped with leaves and trimmed with floating ribbands. Her head is violently thrown back, and the lower part of the drapery is tossed about as she dances for joy. The woodcut is enlarged, by one-third, from a ‘paste’ in the gem-cabinet of the British Museum.|
