Antique Pair Hand Carved 20 Greek God PAN Caryatids Corbel Atlantes Oak
Antique Pair Hand Carved 20 Greek God PAN Caryatids Corbel Atlantes Oak. For sale is this FANTASTIC set of 2 antique carved caryatids. These were carved by an expert artist in the 19th Century, and appear to be made of Oak. These came from a California estate in a spectacular craftsman house where they were displayed. They likely were part of a grand staircase at one time (not from that house, they are way older than the house), and they are a classical pair who I believe represent the Greek God Pan. God of the wild, shepherds and flocks, rustic music and impromptus, and companion of the nymphs. Pan was believed to be one of the inspiration for later depictions of the devil. The carving on these is beautiful, and although they are in a European style they may originate here in California. There were a number of expert carvers here in the 19th Century who worked in Oak.
These are in very good condition with some areas of loss as shown. They measure 20" tall x 9" wide x 5 deep.
