Bronze statuette of a satyr and maenad


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 170

This bronze depicts a satyr abducting a maenad, one of the Archaic period's favorite subjects. Both figures are modeled with a great deal of attention to details, including facial features, hair, and drapery. The ultimate source of inspiration for the maenad is the series of Greek sculpted korai set up as votive offerings in many Greek sanctuaries.
