As we first told you at the start of the month, the theme of the 2011 Pirelli calendar has been confirmed as being structured around the classic Roman and Greek gods; Jove, Bacchus and a host of supporting goddesses in the form of some of the world’s leading supermodels. Today we follow up with the first picture from the shooting of next year’s calendar, showing just how that concept has come to fruition.

Previously, we’d only been privy to two behind-the-scenes photos from the calendar showing Karl Lagerfeld, who is the calendar’s photographer, and some of the cast models.
