Details Every part of Greek and Roman life was touched by the divine and the deity responsible for watching over the shepherds was the mountain and forest dwelling Pan. With the torso of a human, the legs of a goat and horns sprouting from his head, he is said to be the son of Hermes and a forest Nymph. Although there are various myths connected with his parentage that give differing versions of his lineage.
There are many tales told of Pan, and his strong association with music and dancing means he is often credited with inventing the panpipes.

This replica has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact. It has been fired to a temperature of between 800 & 1000 Centigrade, to emulate the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, as is common with the original Greek Pottery and giving each piece it's unique character.
