Large Syrinx Carved Picture/Panel - Wood

Description
Large Syrinx Carved Picture/Panel - Wood
Unknown - Early 20th century

A large picture carved out of wood depicting 'Syrinx'.

In classical Greek mythology, Syrinx was a nymph and a follower of Artemis, known for her chastity. Pursued by the amorous god Pan, she ran to a river's edge and asked for assistance from the river nymphs. In answer, she was transformed into hollow water reeds that made a haunting sound when the god's frustrated breath blew across them. Pan cut the reeds to fashion the first set of pan pipes, which were thenceforth known as syrinx.

'SYRINX' is carved into the bottom of the picture.

The picture of framed.

Unsure of the country of origin, I believe it is probably Italy or Greece but it was bought in the U.K.

Very old.
