Pan by NataliaSerrano Pan by NataliaSerrano
made for :iconartisancraft: myth contest
the first contest that i had time to join. Like every plushie that i create im in love with it. the idea came when i was sewing sheeps, he is the first humanoid plushie that i make

Pan in Greek mythology, is the god of shepherds and flocks, of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music, as well as the companion of the nymphs. He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr.

One of the famous myths of Pan involves the origin of his pan flute, fashioned from lengths of hollow reed. Syrinx was a lovely water-nymph of Arcadia, daughter of Landon, the river-god. As she was returning from the hunt one day, Pan met her. To escape from his importunities, the fair nymph ran away and didn't stop to hear his compliments. He pursued from Mount Lycaeum until she came to her sisters who immediately changed her into a reed. When the air blew through the reeds, it produced a plaintive melody. The god, still infatuated, took some of the reeds, because he could not identify which reed she became, and cut seven pieces , joined them side by side in gradually decreasing lengths, and formed the musical instrument bearing the name of his beloved Syrinx. Henceforth Pan was seldom seen without it.

good luck. I'm quite interested in the result now. :)

if I manage to get my entry finished in time, it'll be about a myth about my home region (and that myth is actually only known there). :D
