Pensive Pan

Pensive Pan Ancient God of Sacrificial Fertility. He was the goat-hooved and lusty king of the Arcadian forest, the original Horned One. His Neolithic cult was later subsumed in the ecstatic wine-rituals of Dionysian Greece. This seated representation shows the god in his prankster or "puckish" mode, horned, ithyphallic and seated upon a hummock. The first tragedy (in greek-tragoidos-meaning "goat song") told the sacred story of his death and ressurection. Pan is the quintessential woodland god, demonized by the Church to diminish his powerful influence upon rural folk across Europe.
