GOD OF PASTURES
From the theme series “Satyrs and Gargoyles”
Yellow gold pendant/enhancer
with a high-relief cameo carving
on Lapis (Afghanistan)
7cm high, with a 24” long strand
of 16mm Afgan Lapis beads
with a 14K yellow gold clasp.
the God of Pastures” is from Helen’s theme series work “Satyrs and Gargoyles”.
The theme allows for dynamic expressionism, infinite variations,
and exaggerated features. The distorted features emit demonic pathos and induce awe.
In classic Greek mythology Pan is the chief god of pastures, forests and flocks.
He is often represented with a beard and
horns on his forehead like a goat.
Pan was supposed to inspire irrational behavior
and sudden fright, hence the word panic.
