Seller: artancientltd (9,489) 99.4%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 390994778676 Material: Bronze, Original or Reproduction: Original, Genuine or Reproduction: Genuine, Culture: Roman, Period: 100 BC, Depiction: Satyr, Style: Hellenistic, Details: An ancient Greek / early Roman figure of a satyr, dating to around 100 BC -50 AD. A fine example of an interesting and energetic scene. The satyr appears to have been caught off balance, he raises his hands as if to steady himself, though perhaps to also play the aulos or double flutes. The musculature of the torso and chest are finely modelled, as are the strong, stocky legs. The hair is long, reaching down to the base of the neck with a wreath or handband to hold it in place. Lovers of music, wine and women, the satyrs were the ancient embodiment of physical pleasure; often they were depicted riding atop donkeys and playing the double reeded flute (aulos), as indeed the modelling of the hands and legs suggest this figure may have been. Judging from his body language, this individual’s love of wine seems to have left him moments away from embarrassment. Height alone: 2 7/8 inches. Height mounted: 3 1/2 inches. Condition: Excellent, unrestored and exhibiting an attractive patina. With a bespoke ebonised stand designed by Colin Bowles, mountmaker to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Provenance: Ex.
