Faun





Fauns are, in Roman mythology, the equivalent of Greek Satyrs. They are spirits of the wild forest. This one is covered with many animal totems as the energies of the faery woods bathes him in otherworld light. The butterfly signifies the beauty of nature, the serpent his strength. The scorpion represents his ability to harm those who harm the woods, and the eagle his wide-flung senses. The spider grants him wisdom while the honeybee on his forearm warns of his sexual potency.
