"Satyrs and fauns are always male beings . They love music and dancing and is usually harmless to humans . Their favorite activity is chasing nymphs as they entice with their music, and they can also lure mestizos nymphs. Satyrs and fauns descended from the Greek god Pan."
Karin Björquist, Gustavsberg, Sweden. Studio Vase
