An intensely personal evocation of classical antiquity, the satyr gazes wistfully while holding a shell-shaped lamp in one hand, his pipes in the other. It is an autograph Riccio of which several variants are known, and among his monuments is perhaps nearest in style to certain figures in the della Torre reliefs (Louvre), about 1516–1521.
