This is a 3D model of an ancient marble statue in the British Museum. The statue depicts a young satyr (Latin faun), most likely pouring wine on top of an altar. This statue is thought to be a copy of an ancient Greek bronze statue by the sculptor Praxiteles. His sculptures were considered prime examples of the Greek ideal and therefore are thought to have been copied often.
