Even demi-godlike creatures get caught out in the rain sometimes, and this Satyr isn’t having it. The Greek mythological Satyr figures are described as men with the ears and tail of a horse, or hooved animal, and often legs of a goat. They’re said to love wine, music, dancing and women, and inhabit woodlands, mountains and pastures. While often depicted as comically inept or lustful, they are also the keepers of useful knowledge to assist heroes of legend. - Camilla d’Errico
