Cherubs and Satyrs Rejoicing - Item #535
Each piece is custom finished. Depending on a sculpture’s texture and level of detail, the look of a patina can vary. A slight variation in color from order-to-order is to be expected.
Unless otherwise noted, our reproductions are hand-cast in plaster and reinforced with burlap, fiber strands, and/or metal rods for extra strength.
FLAT WHITE: A unified, matte white finish. This is the optimum patina for cast drawing as it allows focus on form.
WHITE PATINA: A white finish with a light ivory tone added to the top surfaces.
LIGHT ANTIQUE PLASTER: A soft mixture of whites, grays, and yellows to replicate the look of an aged plaster cast.

According to our antique P.P. Caproni and Brother catalogs, this sculpture is from a Neoclassical series of reliefs called "Feast of Bacchus." The Roman god Bacchus, or Dionysus in Greek, was the god of wine, agriculture, and ecstasy. The two figures playing instruments near the center of the piece are satyrs or fauns, as evidenced by their goat legs. The cherubs around them eat grapes, drink, and wrestle. A domed building is visible among the vegetation in the background.
