The Barberini Faun, or Drunken Satyr

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Illustration of the life-size marble statue located in Munich, Germany. It was found in 1620 in a moat below Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome. Satyrs attended Dionysus. The satyr in this scuplture is leaning back with his arm behind his head. He has two small horns on his forehead, but otherwise no goat-like features. “In classical myth, a sylvan deity, representing the luxuriant forces of Nature, and closely connected with the worship of Baachus.” —Whitney, 1889
