"Satyr with mask"

The satyr is a mythological half human–half goat creature appearing in both Greek and Roman mythology. Satyr's animal aspect symbolized his immoderate appetites. This noun can also be used metaphorically for a man whose sexual desire is stronger than his sense of decency. They often attempted to seduce or rape nymphs and mortal women alike. Usually portrayed as playing on a flute as part of their seduction act. They were companions of the god Dionysus and were believed to inhabit remote locales, such as woodlands, mountains, and pastures. Over the course of time, satyrs gradually became portrayed as more human and less bestial. I wanted to capture this maturing stage of hiding his sinful intention behind a mask. Just like the majority of our society.
