Lost wax bronze replica.
Period: roman cast of the II century B.C.
The orginal masterpiece is now preserved inside the Naples National Archeological Museum.
The statue represents a naked male figure, bearded, with his head reclined backwards and looking at the sky, with an abundant and fluent hair tail, almost about to start, on his tip toes, a dancing step. The fact that he is depicted with goat horns and a little tail undoubtedly matches it with God Pan or satyrs or wild followers of Greek god of wine and agriculture Dyonisus.
The statue was found inside the House of the Faun, to which it gives the name.
