Offering to the God Pan - Paul Delaroche

Offering to the God Pan: Paul Delaroche

Offering to the God Pan is an 1855 painting by French Romantic artist Paul Delaroche. This work is located in the Cleveland Museum of Art in Cleveland, Ohio.

In Greek mythology, Pan was the god of shepherds, flocks, rustic music, and wilderness. He was often depicted as a satyr—a creature with the upper body of a man and the lower body of a goat, complete with goat horns on his head. Pan is considered a minor god in the Greek pantheon, but his character and attributes had a significant cultural impact.
