In neo-Pagan witchcraft the God and Goddess are the divine forces and the very essence of the craft, they are the Great Father and Great Mother whose limitless energy brings forth all life. They embody the living biosphere of the planet and the forces of the elements; they are the creators and destroyers. She, The Goddess, is the Queen of Heaven, she is the moon, the source of magical power; she is emotion, intuition and the pyschic faculty. He, The God, is the sun, the source of masculine energy; he is the raw force, wisdom and law.

Satyros Statue

Wildly dancing, well-endowed, satyrs were shown with horse's tail and hoof, sometimes garbed as female, often engaged in pranks or sexually suggestive activities. From 550 BCE onwards, his form accompanies most depictions of Dionysos and his maenads on vases and amphoras.

The Satyros persona was adapted by costumed men during annual vintage rites of Dionysos and gave license for bacchanalian revelry and ceremonial stage dancing, out of which developed the Greek chorus as well as the genres of comedy and tragedy. As the emotional and sexual side of the ancient nature centered religion was repressed by rationality and patriarchy, Satyros energy created an erotic rebalancing. Celebrations such as Fasching, Carnival or Mardi Gras are modern expressions of Satyros' wild legacy.

6-3/4 inches cold cast bronze statue.
