Pan is the ancient Greek god of shepherds, fields and wild places. He’s also associated with rampant, licentious sexuality, seduction, becoming overwhelmed with fear (i.e., “panic“) and music. Half-goat, half-man, he’s often depicted playing a set of bound reeds called (of course) the pan flute.
Tootly-tootly-roo! But. Why just play a set of pipes when you can play the whole goat?
Says Dianna: I love this. I want to believe the goat was a dear family pet and now, they can have beautiful music together for all eternity. Because any other explanation just makes it a weird ass goat hanging on this guy’s neck as he plays the most annoying music in the world.
