Faun with fifes bronze statue. Reproduction of the Hellenic god, often depicted by Greek statues with goat legs with a human torso.
The faun was a deity who according to the myth did not reside on Olympus, but in the woods and intimidated 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 narrations believes him to be the son of Zeus and the nymph Callisto.
It represented nature as a whole for better or for worse. God of fertility and unbridled freedom, he was credited with the birth of the flute. In fact, it is said that the nymph Syringa, to escape him, invoked the help of the Naiads and was therefore transformed by them into marsh reeds. The faun, listening to that sound given by the blowing of the wind, decided to build the instrument.
Ideal for lovers of myth.
