IVY  

by nikepages
 
Ivy was a sacred plant of the Greek god Dionysos, the god of wine, fertility and the theatre. It is said that at a celebration honouring Dionysos, a young maiden, Cissos, who overdid the dancing, drinking and celebrating, died of exhaustion, so Dionysus turned her into an ivy plant. Since then, the god was said to wear a crown of ivy leaves in memory of the poor young woman who died in his honour in a paroxysm of ritual madness.
