This is another of the great finds of the sixteenth century, and was dug up in the gardens of Sallustius, near the Quirinal. The original is in the museum of the Louvre, Paris. Viardot says: "The elegance and beauty of form and expression, and the delicacy of execution in this group, entitle it to rank amongst the chief sculptures in the French Museum of antiquities." The brawny vigor of advanced manhood is powerfully realized in the figure of the Faun. [P. 5; exhibited under heading: "Catalogue of Casts."]
