The bronze pieces are cast in Greece using the traditional lost wax method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in texture, patina, and colour. No two pieces are ever the same. If mounted on a marble base, it will be a black or very dark grey base. There may be a variation of some millimetres in the dimensions of the base from time to time.
It's All Greek is proud to have been working with the Semitekolo family foundry since 1999. It has been a privilege to handle these gorgeous pieces and to sell them to customers all over the world.
A mythological hybrid, half man, half hoofed creature like a goat. The satyr is usually depicted with a swishing tail, a snub nose, a beard and a permanently erect and disproportionally large phallus. Satyrs were associated with the worship of Dionysos, god of wine and theatre. The satyr represents unharnessed sexuality and the uninhibited aspects of our human nature, which, if indulged to excess, inevitably leads to potential chaos.
