SATYR CARRYING  NYMPH. STUNNING INTAGLIO. UNIQUE

 The design obtains a magnificence that is admirable as a

CLASSICAL PIECE OF GREEK ART .The forcible rape of the nymph by the satyr  on this intaglio  evolves into a joyful frolic in the arms of an almost human abductor .

The  artist was  influenced by scenes from celebrations of the

local cult of Dionysus from the land of the SATRAE. The

cult  had a folding of satyrs, centaurs and nymphs, all of whom are depicted

on various coinages and intaglios of the region.18 x 14 x 3mm.EF.

This beautiful intaglio was made this  century.
