Daphnis, Roman replica of a group from the late 2nd century BC, Italy, Marble. Musée du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReCap and ReMake from AutoDesk.

The statue was originally part of a group: the god Pan, seated all against the young shepherd Daphnis, teaches him to play Pan’s flute. This creation was attributed to Heliodorus of Rhodes. The head is modern.
