This sculpture, of Bacchus (also known as Dionysus) & Ampelos , was inspired by a Dionysus & Ampelos in Greek mythology.. here briefly described in this blog post:

Inspiration: Dionysus and Ampelos

https://mrvolpone.wordpress.com/2016/03/05/inspiration-dionysus-and-ampelos/

"There are two different myths about Ampelos. Ampelos was a satyr youth, beloved of Dionysus, Greek god of wine and ritual madness.

In Ovid, the story goes that Ampelos fell while picking grapes from a vine hanging on an elm, and died. Dionysus lifted him up to the stars, and he became the constellation Vindemetor, the Grape-Gatherer (also known as Bootes).

In Nonnus, Ampelos was riding on the back of a bull. He boasted to Selene that he was best, as he could drive cattle and had horns. Selene, jealous of his claims, sent a gadfly to harass and chastise him. The gadlfy stung the bull all over, sending him wild. He threw Ampelos off, and gored him to death. Distraught about the death of his beloved, Dionysus transformed him into the first grape vine, and made wine from his blood."

Yeah, those Gods really did some "high-living" in those days! Interesting thing about the Greek Gods....although most had great powers, they didn't seem to have a whole lot of sense!
The Roman Gods weren't much better! Usually, the more power they had, the more trouble they got into! haha
