Torso of a Dancing Faun, 1st century B.C. Graeco Roman. In its original complete form, this figure would have had a goat tail, still partially visible, pointed ears and small horns characteristic of mythological fauns. Ancient Romans associated fauns with the god Faunus who dwelt in woodlands and fields, and was believed to control the fertility of livestock. This remnant of a marble faun may be a Roman copy of an earlier Greek bronze sculpture. Minneapolis Institute of Arts
