We Dance with the Devil…In the Pale Moon Light…

In Greek religion and mythology, Pan (Ancient Greek: Πᾶν, Pān) is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, nature, of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music, and companion of the nymphs


PAN by Gustave Moreau 1894. PAN was the god of shepherds and flocks, of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music. He wandered the hills and mountains of Arkadia playing his pan-pipes and chasing Nymphs. He appears as a man with the horns, legs and tail of a goat, a thick beard, snub nose and pointed ears. He often appears in the retinue of Dionysos & other rustic gods. Most believed his name being the Greek pan meaning "all". However, it true origin is the Arkadian word for rustic.


Pan is the Greek God of the wild, the inspirer of panic. He is half-human and half-goat, and His name simply means "All". by Thalia Took
