Details

View of a forest scene with various small children who make offerings to Faunus. Based on Horace's Oden, book 1, poem 4, verses 9-12: the ode to spring. In translation, the text reads: “Now it is fitting to cover the shining head with either fresh myrtle or with flowers, which the liberated earth produces. Now it is appropriate to sacrifice Faunus in the shady, sacred forests, whether he demands that a lamb be sacrificed to him or he prefers a kid. '' (Latijnengrieks.com, 2015). Etching and engraving by Pellegrino dal Colle (1737-1812), after the painting by Giacomo Franceschini (1672-1745).
