In ancient Greek religion and mythology ‘Pan’ is the god of the wild, shepherds & flocks, rustic music & Impromtus, and companion of the woodland Nymphs. He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a Faun or Satyr. With his homeland in rustic Arcadia, he is also recognized as the god of fields, groves, wooded glens and often affiliated with sex, because of this, Pan is connected to fertility and the season of spring.
