Isn't this satyr just beautiful? It was excavated in Zone (Greece). Photo: Michel Gybels, and it's from this webpage, still under construction.
Looks almost Rococo to me ! Smile

Nice indeed !

M.VIB.M.
Salvete,

Absolutely! The musculature on the bull is grotesquely beautiful in it's overemphasis. An amazing piece of Art.

Would enjoy displaying a copy on the mantel.

Thank you for sharing this.
I think I might have said Panther as opposed to bull.
Exactly. Swore the link said, "Bull" instead of Panther last night when I read it.

OK, I made a mistake due to fatigue or idiocy as I would imagine those that felt it necessary to thank you for the correction might possibly be implying. Shall I now get booted off the forum by the "Learned" ones?

In truth, I didn't think it looked much like a Bull either above the neck but guess that would be rather difficult to prove after the fact, eh?

'My bad'. As the current popular saying goes amongst the less than "learned".

I bow to thee in utter and devastating humiliation...wink, wink.

Thank you,
No my thank was just for saving me posting that I thought it was a Griffin!! Tongue heh heh
What is he holding to his mouth? At first I thought it was "pan pipes", but it looks too uniform in length.

It still says. When I uploaded that photo, I was in a hurry, and called it a bull. I later realized it's not and corrected it on the website. But I didn't change the photo's name.

Perhaps it is a syrinx after all, but of a slightly different type: reeds of equal length, but partly filled with wax or lead or lime. Just a thought; I admit I have never seen pan pipes like these.
That thought crossed my mind too, thanksJona.
There was a link on FB which showed some type of pipe setup yesterday, I wonder if it is related. Seemed it was a solid construction.
