Satyr Pouring Wine


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The satyr exemplifies the carefree world of Dionysus, god of wine. The original statue, now lost, was by the celebrated artist Praxiteles. The goat-eared satyr pours from a jug that was held in his upraised right hand into a shallow dish he held below. The sinuous curves and unmuscled adolescent body are hallmarks of Praxiteles' most celebrated works, as are the grace and charm of the subject.
