Subject Description: This statue type, restored from over one hundred Roman copies (approximately 1/5 of which are miniatures) was clearly very popular throughout the Roman world. The figures are made recognizable as satyrs by their pointed ears and tails, as well as bestial facial appearances. The image is that of a satyr resting on his straight left leg, with the foot of his bent right leg drawn slightly behind it. A panther skin (a Dionysiac emblem) is generally thrown over the right shoulder, with the paws tied together, drawing the skin diagonally across the front of the satyr's body. The satyr leans his right forearm against a tree trunk. The resulting pose is similar to that of Praxiteles'
