Statuette of a dancing Satyr
The young follower of Dionysus is shown playing the double flute and dancing on tiptoe. His motions generate a complex pose that suggests a spiral movement with cross-rotation of the different parts of the body. This finely crafted piece is a copy of the famous dancing satyr in the Borghese collection, itself a copy of a work by Lysippus or his milieu (late 4th century B.C.).
