Papposileno 3D Model
Rome, the via Flavia, from a residential building (1906).
This sculptural fragment depicts Papposilenos, the aged Silenus, tutor to Dionysus. He is portrayed with a hairy coat, depicted sculpturally by means of a drill, to make the holes in the ringlets of hair covering his body. The original figure likely held his arm above his head, supporting a cup or wineskin, symbols of the wild, drunken nature of Silenus.
From the Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, in Rome, Italy.
