Faun with fifes bronze statue. Reproduction of the Hellenic god, often depicted by the Greek statues with goat legs with a human bust.
The faun was a deity who, according to the myth, did not reside on Olympus, but in the woods and frightened anyone who disturbed him with his frightening voice. The god of fields and pastures is at the center of several legends also about his origins. One of his narratives believes him to be the son of Zeus and the nymph Callisto.
It represented nature as a whole for good and bad. God of fecundity and unbridled freedom, the birth of the flute was attributed to him. In fact, it is said that the nymph Syringe, in order to escape him, invoked the help of the Naiads and then was transformed by them into marsh reed. The faun, listening to that sound given by the blowing of the wind, decided to build the instrument.
Ideal for lovers of myth.
