This statuary group, representing a hermaphrodite attacked by a satyr, is a Roman copy of the 1st century CE of a Hellenistic original. It stood around the pool of the Villa Oplontis near Pompeii (Italy). The photo was taken at the “Pompeii And Santorini. Eternity In A Day” exhibition held at the Scuderie Del Quirinale in Rome from October 11 to January 6, 2020.
