A wonderful pair of 17th Century Italian Carrara Marble Busts depicting Pan and Syrinx on later Carrara marble soccles.
Pan wears a dramatic Lion pelt around his shoulders. Both are swathed in typically romantic Baroque robes.
The busts would look incredible positioned within a garden, on a wall, free-standing on plinths or within a niche. Equally they are beautiful as works of art within your interior.
In Classical Greek mythology Syrinx, a nymph known for her chastity became the attention of Pans’ desires. He pursued her to a rivers edge where she asked for assistance from the river nymphs. In answer she was transformed into hollow water reeds which made a haunting sound when the Gods frustrated breath blew across them...Pan cut the reeds and fashioned the original set of Pan Pipes which was forever known as syrinx.
Wear consistent with age with old repairs. Height without plinths. Displayed here on 1820s Georgian wooden plinths in original paint available separately (Please enquire).
