Antique Patinated Bronze Greek Mythology Pan Sculpture
Up for your viewing pleasure is a large, patinated bronze sculpture of the mythological Pan. He was the Greek god of shepherds and flocks, mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music. He wandered the hills and mountains of Arkadia playing his pan-pipes and chasing Nymphs.
Pan was depicted as a man with the horns, legs and tail of a goat, and with a thick beard, snub nose and pointed ears. A lovely sight for sore eyes.
This Pan sculpture measures 16" tall x 4.75" wide x 6 3/8" deep, and the detail is amazing. It is unsigned, so we are uncertain of its maker. You can see traces of the nonmagnetic, golden bronze beneath the patination of this sculpture's base.
Circa early 1900s, it is without damage. All fingers, horns, and tail are intact which when often times found, are typically broken or damaged. This sculpture shows scattered areas of wear, which adds to the character and mystique of this antique piece.
A decorative work of art and so perfect for your gothic home.
