The young Pan

130 - 150. Marble

The musician god Pan originally had a flute rather than the instrument resembling a recorder he now holds. The ungainly later additions - head, hands, legs and tree trunk - distort the graceful original, inspired by Praxiteles and sculpted around the late 4th century BC. The diagonally held flute would have created the principal axis on which the bent arms met, while the head was originally that of a chubby boy.
