Saturday Statues: Syrinx and Pan

In Indianapolis, we were in a park where on one side was this statue of Pan playing his flute:

Roger White, American sculptor, created Pan and his companion Syrinx, of bronze with limestone pedestal. This was originally a drinking fountain. The sculpture of Pan was stolen 3 times! This is the 4th rendition.

On the other end was Syrinx, her hand to her ear, straining to hear Pan’s flute from afar.

Syrinx, a nymph in Greek mythology , is shown listening to the call of the pipes played by her companion, Pan, whose statue is located on the other side of the fountain.
