We need a poster for our Village Carnival. Our village is for the ancient myth the place of ancient Greek God Pan, and the carnival for years is dedicated to Pan, Dionysus and Satyrs. We don't want something girly with shiny colours or the typical carnival poster, but something more traditional, classic and "simple"

- We want to focus on God Pan
- We will like to see a way of photo-realistic renaissance painting
- We are open in alternative ways of representing Pan (different sex, horns or color)
Pan (god)
In Greek religion and mythology, Pan (/ˈpæn/; Ancient Greek: Πάν, Pan) is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, nature of mountain wilds and rustic music, and companion of the nymphs. His name originates within the Ancient Greek language, from the word paein (πάειν), meaning "to pasture." He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. With his homeland in rustic Arcadia, he is also recognized as the god of fields, groves, and wooded glens; because of this, Pan is connected to fertility and the season of spring. The ancient Greeks also considered Pan to be the god of theatrical criticism.

"Nymphs and Satyr (Pan) 1873", Art - by William Bouguereau. At it's debut in1873, Bouguereau set the scene with a quotation from the first century Latin poet Publius Statius, describing the goat god Pan: “Conscious of his shaggy hide, and from childhood untaught to swim, he dares not trust himself to the deep waters,” In Bouguereau’s imaginative depiction of Pan’s predicament, four sprites gleefully drag the swarthy satyr into the water as a second bevy of nudes approaches.

Aesthetics :
Searching the internet for an image or images to create the creature came across many totally sexual oriented images, for some reason Pan and Satyr are connected with porno. Anyway I was searching for a face that doesn't have sex, you cant say if that you see is male or female, after hours of searching my bases, I came across that image and here we are!
