The Cosa Faun 3D Model
The Cosa Faun
Roman, from the colony of Cosa.
This statuette is a faun in the pose of Marsyas, the follower of Dionysus who challenged Apollo to a music contest and, upon losing, was flayed alive for his hubris.
Here, the faun’s hands are bound behind his back. Because of the “in the round” nature of the sculpture, it was likely displayed in a space where viewers could move around it to take in the various details on every side. This piece is on display in the Cosa Museum, and was scanned as part of the Digital Cosa Project.
