Fauns children, boy and girl.

Description Ideas

Once I saw an old French figurine of a faun of a child crying. According to legend, the faun really cried, because the nymphs were very afraid of him, and was usually portrayed as crying, but he was already an adult, and it struck me that I never thought that the faun was also a child. I wanted to play with this story using modern language, and I also thought, let the faun have a cute girlfriend.
