Run to save the cheetah’s from extinction.
Do not let your children see cheetahs as images in art books.
In Titian’s painting Bacchus and Ariadne (1523), the Bacchus’s chariot is drawn by cheetahs. These majestic animals were used as hunting-animals in Renaissance Italy In the painting,
Bacchus, god of wine, emerges with his followers from the landscape to the right. Falling in love with Ariadne on sight, he leaps from his chariot, drawn by two cheetahs, towards her. Ariadne had been abandoned on the Greek island of Naxos by Theseus, whose ship is shown in the distance. The picture shows her initial fear of Bacchus, but he raised her to heaven and turned her into a constellation, represented by the stars above her head.
