Object Detail


Description
figure group, Faun and the Infant Bacchus. The young God tempts the faun with a bunch of grapes in one hand, whilst he clutches his hair with the other. On the stump next to his feet lie insignia of the God - the pan pipes, shepherd's staff and a goat skin. The stump is also decorated with grapes and leaves. The original bronze is a Roman copy of a Greek sculpture carved from marble around 200 BC.
