An Arresting Parallel

Take a look at this photo taken in the museum at Olympia, the site of the ancient Olympic Games.  It's a statue preserved beautifully--featuring Hermes carrying the infant Dionysius to safety.
Does it remind you of a similar trope or theme in Christian legend?  What are the parallels you see?

Tomorrow morning we leave Greece and return home.  I will be taking 2 courses next week at Yale Divinity School.  We are looking forward to being in our own country again, but we highly recommend that anyone considering a European vacation go to Greece.  The people are amazingly hospitable!  The food is beyond compare.  We've had such a great time here, and our hearts go out to the people of Greece who are suffering so much right now.  Go to Greece!  Or start buying more Greek products...the people are so worthy of help.
