Description

This reproduction depicts Aphrodite and Pan with Eros just above them. Pan, goat-footed, is trying to embrance the nude goddess who has removed her left sandal with which she teasingly threatens to strike him as Eros (Cupid) hovers above them. It was found on the island of Delos (famous as the birthplace of the god Apollo). Aphrodite was the Goddess of Love, beauty and fertility, identified in Rome with Venus. Her graceful body symbolizes the Greek ideal of beauty. Pan was a God of shepherds and flocks, he was depicted with a reed pipe, a shepherd’s crook and being half-man half-goat, with horns, a goat’s beard and goat legs.
