Brief History Paganism: 

Paganism represents a wide variety of traditions that emphasize reverence for nature and a revival of ancient polytheistic and animistic religious practices.  Paganism is not a traditional religion per se because it does not have any official doctrine, but it does have some common characteristics joining the great variety of traditions. One of the common beliefs is the divine presence in nature and the reverence of the natural order in life. Spiritual growth is related to the cycles of the Earth and great emphasis is placed on ecological concerns. Monotheism is almost universally rejected within Paganism and most Pagan traditions are particularly interested in the revival of ancient polytheist religious traditions including the Norse (northern Europe) and Celtic (Britain) traditions. Many Pagan traditions are intentionally reconstructionist in that they aim to revive many of the lost rituals of the ancient traditions, including holy days and seasonal celebrations. Besides Nature, many Pagans also worship a variety of gods and goddesses, including spirits which can represent national and local heroes.  Many Pagans try to honor their ancestry and ancestors. Some Pagan traditions include ritual magic, but this practice is not universal.

Description

25cms (10") high, in cold cast bronze resin, this is a gorgeous depiction of the 'goat foot god', companion of the Nymphs.  Pan, from the Ancient Greek 'Paein' (to pasture) and the root 'Pa' ('Guardian of the flocks' - the guardian between civilization and the wild).  The God of wild mountains, caves, nature, hunting and rustic music, His home is Arcadia, recognised also as the God of fields, groves, wooded glens, shepherds, flocks and the Season of Spring. Pan was the patron of what has come to be known as 'panic sex'; sex for the sake of wanton lust and physical satisfaction.  One day Pan came across a beautiful nymph, Syrinx. He tried to seduce her, but she managed to run away. Hotly pursued by Pan, she sought refuge amongst her sisters, who transformed her into a reed. As the wind blew, a melody was produced and Pan, not knowing which reed Syrinx was transformed into, took seven or nine of them and joined them side by side in decreasing length, thus creating the musical instrument that bore the name of the nymph. He is connected to fertility and season of Spring.  A wonderful figure to add to your pantheon!
