- Forest Pan Statue
Bronze Pan Statue
Pan with his pipe seated on moss covered stone within the forest. The Greek God Pan is perhaps the most familiar form of the Horned God/Wild Man.
He was the goat-hooved and lusty king of the Arcadian forest, the original Horned One. His Neolithic cult was later subsumed in the ecstatic wine-rituals of Dionysian Greece. This seated representation shows the god horned and seated upon a rock. The first tragedy (in Greek-tragoidos meaning "goat song") told the sacred story of his death and resurrection. Pan is the quintessential woodland god, demonized by the Church to diminish his powerful influence upon rural folk across Europe.
Statue stands approximately 9 1/2 inches tall and is crafted of cold cast bronze resin.
