He is nude except for an animal skin that is draped in front of his abdomen and over his arms. He also wears a cap in the design of an animal’s head, possibly a rabbit. Originally, he was playing a double flute, which is now lost. Most often Pan is depicted as half goat with furry legs, tail, and horns. Here MacMonnies relies upon the animal skin and the flute to identify the figure as the rustic nature deity whose home is in the wild with animals and nymphs. He stands on a globe supported by wreaths and upright figures of fish with curved tails. Around the bottom of the statue, letters in relief read, “TO PAN OF ROHALLION ANNO DOMINI MDCCCLXL.” On the reverse side of the globe, “Frederick MacMonnies Paris 1890” is inscribed in a cursive hand. The original Pan of Rohallion was created by American sculptor Frederick William MacMonnies (1863-1937) in 1888 for the Rohallion Estate in New Jersey. The Pan statue was one of MacMonnies’ earlier commissions, yet many reproductions of it exist. The replica at Bryn Mawr was acquired by M. Carey Thomas, the first dean and second president of the college, and it adorned the Dorothy Vernon room in the Deanery. ", "Dedication" : "Bequest of M.
