Faun with the Pipes bronze statue. Reproduction of the Hellenic god, often represented by Greek statues with goat legs and human bust.
The faun was a divinity that lives in the woods and intimidated anyone who disturbed him with his frightening voice. The god of fields and pastures is at the center of several legends also on its origins. One of his narratives believes him to be the son of Zeus and the nymph Callisto.
It represented nature as a whole for better or for worse. God of fertility and unbridled freedom, the birth of the flute was attributed to him. A legend recounts that the nymph Syringe, to escape from him, invoked the help of the Naiads and was therefore transformed by them into a marsh reed. The faun, listening to that sound given by the wind, decided to build the instrument.
