An elongated and interesting oil lamp, formed of a face of a bearded satyr, hybrid half-man half-goat acolyte of Dionysos, god of drama and wine. Satyrs were wild, unrestrained creatures, with goat-hooves, a swishing tale, pointed ears, and, as here, a snub nose!
Not recommended for use, but it does work. Make sure you don't place it on a wooden surface, however.
