Arcadian Shepherd of Wild Animals
Smooth carmel colored, high quality, cold cast
with green patina, 6 inches tall. (15.24 cm)
This is a lovely small bronze statue that looks very
rich in person. Bronze color is accurate in the top photo. A beautiful bronze
representation of this satyr God of the Natural world. In this depiction, Young
Pan holds a small billy goat as the mother goat follows him. They are both
hoofed beings, sure-footed and strong.
He taught the woodland fauns how to play the panpipes!
Greek art show Pan as the half-goat, half man, hoofed God of shepherds and
flocks, wild mountains, hunting and pipe music. His name is Greek from the word paein,
meaning "to pasture."
Pan has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, just like a faun or satyr.
With his homeland in rustic Arcadia, he is recognized as the God of
fields, groves, and wooded glens. His connection to nature gives Pan a connected
to fertility and the Spring season.
Even as a boy, Pan prefers the solitude of his pipes and his goats. He
reminds us to respect the wilder side of nature and to take time for
contemplation, love of beauty, and playful fun. Sweet in the hand and a lovely
match to Young Artemis.
