Janiform Herm with Young Male and Female Fauns

Bronze

Roman, 1st century BC - 1st century AD

The term ‘janiform’ derives from the Roman divinity Janus, the god of doors and openings, who is usually depicted with two faces back to back. Here, the smiling faces are diminutive forms of the rustic god Pan, one male (Paniskos), one female (Paniske). The Paniskos head has two goat-horns in his hair and wears a goat-skin. The hooves are visible at his shoulders. The long-haired Paniske wears a wreath of ivy and berries. The eyes of both faces would probably have been inlaid with precious stones and silver, traces of which remain.
