A large picture carved out of wood depicting 'Syrinx'.
In classical Greek mythology, Syrinx was a nymph and a follower of Artemis, known for her chastity. Pursued by the amorous god Pan, she ran to a river's edge and asked for assistance from the river nymphs. In answer, she was transformed into hollow water reeds that made a haunting sound when the god's frustrated breath blew across them. Pan cut the reeds to fashion the first set of pan pipes, which were thenceforth known as syrinx.
'SYRINX' is carved into the bottom of the picture.
The picture of framed.
Unsure of the country of origin, I believe it is probably Italy or Greece but it was bought in the U.K.

The info in Catawiki stated that one statue had a broken hand
This is not true
BOTH STATUES have the hand broken - not one
This is an unfair information which significantly devalues the items I have
