Facial features reveal attractive young chubby male face with snub nose; lips slightly parted and mouth agape revealing teeth. Prominent cheekbones lidded almond-shaped eyes under shaggy eyebrows and gnarled furrowed forehead. Luxurious thick curling hair, wearing a wreath of overlapping ivy leaves, the back of the wreath joined together with strap. The Roman Satyr was goat-like from waist down, with a man’s torso and head complete with horns.
