The marble statue known as the Barberini Faun, Fauno Barberini or Drunken Satyr is located in the Glyptothek in Munich, Germany.
The sculpture was either carved by an unknown Hellenistic sculptor of the Pergamene school, in the late third or early second century BC or is a Roman copy of high quality, though its present form was given it by a series of restorers in Rome, ending with Vincenzo Pacetti. The statue was found in the 1620s in the moat below the Castel Sant’Angelo, Rome, which in Antiquity had been Hadrian’s Mausoleum.
When discovered, the statue was heavily damaged; the right leg, parts of both hands, and parts of the head were missing.
It was traditionally asserted that Gianlorenzo Bernini was comissioned to restore the statue, “but there is no evidence for the tradition that Bernini was in any way involved with the statue.”
These restorations of the Barberini Faun may have enhanced the sexual aspect of the statue. Because of this, the statue has acquired a reputation as an example of erotic art.
