Unique Royal Copenhagen Stoneware Woman and faun by Knud Kyhn. The ultimate one-of-a-kind faun figurine by Knud Kyhn is a huge group of a nude woman embraced by the faun, who is kneeling and looking excited at her. You can see his hooves, the tale and horns as the typical characteristic of a faun. It is marked with the three wavy lines of Royal Copenhagen – the signature KK and the year 1931. Measurement is ca 71 x 50 cm and it is hollow but still the weight is more than 33 kg. The glaze coloring is light and happy, compared to the dark sung glazes that usually are found on the production pieces of KK.  The general condition is as it should be – you will find crackled and unglazed spot as to be expected on a kind of items like this and also a small chip at one point. It will be the pearl in every collection of fauns or Knyd Kyhn works

In Roman mythology, fauns are place-spirits (genii) of untamed woodland. Romans connected their fauns with the Greek satyrs, wild and orgiastic drunken followers of Dionysus. However, fauns and satyrs were originally quite different creatures. Both have horns and both resemble goats below the waist, humans above; but originally satyrs had human feet, fauns goatlike hooves. The Romans also had a god named Faunus and a goddess Fauna, who, like the fauns, were goat-people.
