Product Description

Pan & Daphnis Statue, bronze

9.5 inches tall

Cold-cast bronze resin

In Greek mythology, Daphnis was a hero from the island of Sicily.  Daphnis was a son of Hermes and a Sicilian nymph who was tricked by Hermes into making love to him. When Daphnis was born she abandoned him to die in a grove of laurels (from which he gets his name in Greek) on the Mountain of Hera as revenge against his father Hermes. But Hera saw her plight and took pity on the beautiful infant. She made sure that he was found by some shepherds, who brought him home and raised him as one of their own. From an early age he was renowned for his beauty, and for his delightful songs about the shepherd's life. His great pride was his herd of cattle, which were of the same stock as those belonging to Helios, the sun god, and of which he took the greatest care.  As a shepherd and flutist, he was the inventor of pastoral poetry. A naiad (a water nymph) fell in love with him, but he was not faithful to her. In revenge, she either blinded him or turned him to stone. Pan also fell in love with him and taught him to play the pan pipes.

Pan is the famous half-goat God of ancient Arcadia.  He is the Protector of shepherds and their flocks, and the God presiding over small game hunting, such as that of rabbits and birds (while Artemis presides of the hunt of larger game like deer). There are at least 14 different myths concerning his origins, but many relate that his father was Hermes, and that his mother was a Nymph.

Pan is ever the rustic and rowdy God, often chasing after Nymphs such as Echo and Psyche, or even after the Moon Selene herself (who always escapes him).  He is often pictured in the midst of revelry, either dancing or drinking or playing the Syrinx (Pan-pipes).  Many worshiped him in caves, but his cults were found in cities as well.

In later times Pan's role was greatly expanded from a pastoral God into a universal God, playing upon his name which in Greek means "All".  In yet another role, his debaucherous and drunken side was often identified by the Romans with their Bacchus.

High-quality cold-cast bronze statue.  9.5 inches tall, 6 inches wide, 4.5 inches deep.
